ZOO VISIT

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!

  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.
