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!

      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.
