The rest of the pictures

Delighted that you liked the pictures in the series, and here are the rest. We were in the zoo only for half a day. Next time, for the sake of my friends, and I mean you, I'll spend a whole day going click click click. Promise.

Enjoy!

For those first-time visitors who wonder what the blazes I'm babbling about, please visit the early hubs in the series. Links below:

Oh Kenny......If I could talk to the animals....

I have so enjoyed all the pictures of those sweet critters. Thanks for making my winter in Utah so much more enjoyable...I love going to the Zoo and to think I didn't even have to leave home!

Have a Dynamic Day!

Yes, Yippity, they would tell the most wonderful tales. But sometimes they really look as if they could talk. Eloquent looks they give us! You, too: have a Dynamic Day!

Iðunn, I like their elegance. And the stork has strong character.
