We have had some amazing weather recently, and Chris and I have made two trips to the Memphis Zoo. I've decided that the zoo is a great place to play with my camera. There are so many interesting little (and big) animal faces!
Here are a few of my favorite shots. Some of these were taken through the "glass" areas of the exhibits so the color looks off, but there were plenty of opportunities to shoot without any real barriers.
I call this Drippy Mouth, and it was shot through the glass area.
This one was shot from the outdoor observation area, and you can see the difference.
This glass didn't look this dirty or foggy, but my camera picked up on every texture in it. Either way, here is Chris really close to a bear!
Some random kid and Chris--again, really close to a bear!
I would name this one mohawk.
Doesn't he/she look like he/she is smiling!
A little more tongue.
We saw some really good bear fights too. Sometimes it looked like they just wanted to kiss, but then a fight would break out.
I like the curly-q ability of the trunk.
I'm pretty sure this Panda looked right at me and smiled.
The otters are one of my favorites!
This dude looks old.
Unfortunate beak issue there, but pretty.
Meerkats! Another favorite of mine. Look at those cute faces.
Some tiger tongue.
It turned out to be a good afternoon for a nap.
