While the kids had a super long weekend for Easter break, I knew we would have to get out and do something. Monday we took a ride up to the "other" zoo, as my kids like to call it. It was a mostly beautiful day (it rained for about a minute while we were visiting the leopards) and we got to see lots of animals that we don't get to see at the Pittsburgh Zoo. Here are just a few of the photos I took ...
Chilean Flamingo - This guy was funny. He kept begging Keira to feed him - putting his head up and opening his beak.
Kookaburra - He barely moved when I was taking his photo.
Black Leopard - I love how you can see the spots on her belly.
Lion - He kept roaring over and over but by the time we got to the window to see what was up, he had stopped. Except this time. He roared a little more then went to take a nap. :)
Peacock - Our favorite part of the visit. He opened his tail feathers to try to impress a peahen and kept strutting his stuff for quite a while. I recorded him a little and laugh every time I watch it. Not because of the peacock, but because of Nick's commentary while the peacock was doing his thing. I'm still trying to decide if I wish to share it with the world so stay tuned. :) (Entering this last photo for Shoot. Edit. Submit.)
My peacock photo was picked as this week's winner for the Shoot. Edit. Submit. contest!
