Yesterday was the second day I got to take advantage of the Turtle Back Zoo membership I received on my birthday back in August.
Life has been crazy lately with all my work and projects, so it was nice to slow down a bit and take a walk around the zoo, getting fresh air, exercise and practicing my new hobby of shooting animals (and my husband said, “I’m going to have to get you a better camera.” Maybe for Christmas, I hope!)
The above shots were the best two of the day.
In the top shot it appears that it’s mother and baby. But it’s actually two different types of animals (which I learned on Saturday). The kangaroo is much bigger than the smaller wallaby. I also learned that a wallaby is friendlier to humans and a kangaroo can get nasty and knock you out with a punch!
I was very lucky to get a photo of the peacock perched. It looks like he is posing.
Enjoy these and hopefully I’ll keep getting better. This was only my second attempt at animal photography with a digital camera.
