10/02/09 - NC Zoo Trip Fall 2009
As you can see, we had a great time at the zoo! I took about 850 pics and put 250 of them into a 'Best Of' album and then out of that 250 picked these for a collage. I just couldn't pick just one to post today, so please forgive me. I was falling asleep with my computer in my lap again last night trying to get these processed so I could pick one for today, and then when I went to post my blog this morning
I created this collage real quick using Picasa and I liked it so much I wanted to post it.
The new geyser is a WOW! The kids did get to feed the giraffes from the platform. The new bee exhibit was open, and we got to watch the bees coming and going to the hive. I got a Monarch Butterfly (I think it's not a Viceroy) shot! Tons of great smiling kid shots! Just grand flowers and foliage to photograph around the park.
So, we get to the lion exhibit, and they are both sound asleep. The kids are roaring and hollaring and just about begging them to get up. Finally, as we were leaving, the male decided that he needed to reposition. He stoood, I snapped, he walked about 10' and collapsed right back to sleep. But, Joey was so thrilled that his real Lovey got up for HIM:-)
I'm off again today and hope to find some more fun!
Thanks for making me smile about the pumpkin picture from yesterday. When I got home and saw that you guys had enjoyed it, that certainly made me feel good!
