A week or so ago, my guy wanted some animal pix so we went to the zoo. I don't really approve of zoos but Jacksonville has a nice one and their citizens contribute greatly to keeping it that way.

There were a few wood storks settling in but most of the spring rookery will come later this month.

My guy spent most of the morning with the big cats, while I walked around, then sat on a shady bench to enjoy the people. Here are a sampling of his photos:

We have a jaguar, monkey (Look at that face!), pink flamingoes (more like RED flamingoes) and two tigers. There is a baby tiger this year, but he wasn't out.

Nice visit!

    1. Yes, this zoo seems to take care of their animals!

  2. The tiger's particularly impressive!

  3. Beautiful animals. It seems sad to keep animals in a zoo but the way the world is now this seems the best way.

    1. Yes, I always feel sorry for them in their pens.
