"Wild" Christmas at the Zoo -vvv

I visited the Zoo today as part of the department's Christmas celebration. It seems a little different from the way I remembered. You can get closer to some animals now. Perhaps the cool weather encouraged the animals to come out into the open instead of hiding in a corner. What irony. When the sunlight is good for photographs, the animals hide in the shadows to cool off. When it's gloomy and the lighting is poor, the animals come out to play.

Still, the current designs of many enclosures are very friendly to photographers. Look at what I've got with just a digital camera.

Jaguar chillaxing on a log.

Really large Iguana having afternoon snack.

Penguins having fun.

This crowned pigeon shares the walkway with tourists.

I didn't know butterfly eat fruits.

Ring-tailed lemurs eating and jumping around. One of them nearly landed on my camera while I was taking a picture of one of its comrades.

Mouse deer were supposed to be really timid. This one just sat there the whole time I was taking its picture.

This giraffe seems to be able to communicate with the zookeeper. It lowered its head to the lady at one time.
