Zoo Visit

Filed Under Mr C | 19 comments

With new camera in hand I wanted to visit our local zoo; so who better than Mr C to be my guide?  Isn’t he just the most handsome? (very serious checking out the zoo map) By the way — look at those darn eyelashes! (What is it with the good lord giving BOYS and gorgeous animals all the eyelashes?– another topic for later)

Momma and 1 year old baby were featured today…

Perfect example of the eyelashes — She is so darn cute! I offered her my tweezers for her chin hairs but she wanted nothing to do with them.

*sigh* More eyelashes  🙂

These gorgeous monkeys have the coolest long tails. It was very hot, so they just lounged around. (I am still working on my camera settings) I was trying to get the animals BEHIND the chain fences — but have to admit I got some lovely shots of fences instead. (I will work on that) anyone have the magic trick for that — send it my way.

I don’t know for sure but something just tells me he is NOT having that much fun. He kept playing with this hanging ball just to amuse all us people who were saying…”ahhh, look how cute.”  He was thinking… “uh huh… sure … I’m cute… this is what I get paid the big bucks for.”

Mr C was kinda worried the beautiful Giraffes would gobble his hair, thus the concerned look… 🙂

Yet another example of the eyelashes…

But seriously, I wouldn’t put him in harms way… he was pretty far away.  (now my sister can breath again — break out the resuscitator) I told you I would take good care of him. 🙂

Then we rounded a corner to find a fenced in area… Sign said: RED PANDA… I looked and looked.

“ahh Bud… doesn’t look like he is out for us to see today.”

“nope… I know he is here, I remember from when I was here last.”

“When were you here last?”

“In Kindergarten.” (That was 3 years ago.)

So he kept looking then pointed to the tip tip top of the tree…

“look!  I told you he would be here!”

” Are you sure? I can’t see him.”

“Ahem! Look right up there!” pointing to the top of the grove of trees.

“Well, darlin I am not so sure… seems like we are just looking at a bunch of branches and leaves.”

“Nooo, come around here! You will see him!”

So I walked a bit closer to him and looked up.

“Well, what do you know! Look at that cute guy. You are the best Zoo tour guide I have EVER had!”

“Yah, I know.”

(lovin my new Zoom lens)

This nervous female  was obviously behind a pane of glass that needed our local window washers!  She walked back and forth…

… and Back and Forth…

This sweet heart loved posing for me. I am sure she was saying,  “hello, yes I am lovely and fluffy and don’t you think my ankle bracelet is the coolest?”  Yes, I did in fact.

Last but not least… PERFECT example of something on a typical, ordinary day I do NOT find Beautiful… but today, behind that lovely safety glass I think this green guy is kinda cool. *shivers*

Biggest thanks to my MR. C who brought me more laughs and smiles than I have had in a very long time. You brightened my heart like you will never know. Thanks for having the patience to put up with me. Smooch! you cute thing!

    Hi Claudia,
    What a handsome date, and he looked like you showed him a wonderful time.  I love your photographs they are gorgeous.  I am glad that you have a new zoom lens and that you didn’t have to get close to some of the more dangerous ones.  Love the music.

    Claudia, how fun to get a new lense for the camera.  Yet another thing I want to do better is have more camera savy.  I love this post.  He’s gorgeous!!  And so are all the animals you spotted together.  Have a great weekend.

  7. Valerie says:

    You’ve got some great shots there! So you traded in your old boyfriend for a new one??? Do tell … what are you using now? And a new lens too?
    I love to visit blogs with great photos so that I can learn to be better. So I am curious about your gear. Can you post about what’s in your bag?
    That is why I started the Favorite Photo Friday meme. Hoping folks would share a favorite photo and some details on what they used and how they got the shots.
    Your photo’s are great – I’d love to hear how you got them – even if they are SOOC. Seeing what can be done with specific gear is a starting point.

    Claudia – Your zoo photographs capture a memorable afternoon – fabulous shots and a happy companion…thanks for sharing them with us!

  18. Claudia,
    Thank you for taking us along with you to the zoo. Your photos are so good the zoo would do well to feature them in their brochure. The owl, red panda and giraffes all captured my attention but Mr C, by far, is the most stunning.  Tell him to keep those sneakers on. The girls will be chasing him soon enough!
    Your Friend,

  19. Hi Claudia, thanks!!
    I look forwad to joining the Friday ‘ Finding beauty” party!
