Scavenger Hunt Sunday 03.11.12
This week's items are Water, Light, Chocolate, Animal, and Crowded.
All of this week's pictures are brought to you from our recent visits to the Pittsburgh Zoo. We've been taking full advantage of our membership. :)
The kids and I headed to the Pittsburgh Zoo yesterday after Alex's soccer game so we could see the Penguins on Parade ... something the zoo has been doing every Saturday and Sunday at noon for the last month or so. On our way to the parade, we passed through the polar bear tunnel just as the polar bear jumped in the water to play. He only stayed in for a minute, but I managed to capture him while in the water.
This photo of the sand tiger shark was actually taken a couple weeks ago when my friend, Laura, and I visited the zoo with just our cameras and no kids. We were able to spend some leisurely time in the shark tunnel waiting for just the right light. I didn't get exactly the shot I wanted but this one is close.
The baby sea lion, who is the color of chocolate, was resting in the sunlight while the other sea lions swam and played in the water.
The kids love seeing the tigers. They are such beautiful animals.
As expected, the zoo was pretty crowded. Especially where the penguin parade was going to take place. We got to the parade route about 35 minutes before it started and managed to get a space up front. I was excited to get a few pretty good shots of the penguins. And the kids were fairly patient waiting with me. I think Alex only asked ever two minutes if it was time yet. :) It was all worth the wait though, especially when this Gentoo Penguin stopped and appeared to pose for me.
Be sure to stop over at Ashley's to see more great Scavenger Hunt photos. And if you'd like to play along for next week, here's what to look for:
