There were many surprises at the San Diego Zoo. But none as gloriously and feathered as the beautiful birds. Everywhere I went through the park I was surrounded by lovely birds each more interesting that the last. I have attached a few of my favorites either because they were unusual or because they had charachter and paid attention to little ol’ me. My grandmother and I have always taken offense when animal don’t like us or don’t pay attention to us. These feathered friends were very curious and as interested in me as I was in them. If only they carried a camera with them everywhere they went…

I haven’t felt this happy in a very long time

Anyone that knows me knows that two of my favorite things are animals and photography. So, having a surprise afternoon off in beautiful San Diego took me to their lovely zoo for the first time ever. I had a smile plastered on my face the entire time. Everywhere I turned it was one impressive animal after another. Zebras, giraffe, sloth, Galapagos turtle, hippo, so many glorious birds I couldn’t keep count. Any one of these animals would be impressive on their own. But each animal was one-upped by the next even cooler animal. Having something to photograph other than brides for a change was such a treat. Did I mention sloth?
