    Exactly what I was thinking: these are extremely well done. Each could go into the booklet of that zoo! Or on viewcards for them to sell in their souvenir shop. Or in any book on animals! Must rush to part 2 now!!!

    Thanks for the comments, everybody.
    I love going to the zoo, I find it very relaxing, I go there about 8 times a year, all of this photos were taken with in the last 10 months. The good thing about this zoo is that with some of the displays, like the ones for the red panda and the prairie dogs, you to get to be really closed to the animals, I was about three feet away from them.
