Pardon the date in the post. As it should make evident, I took these pictures a while back on a visit to Chester Zoo in England. The trip was a fun from what I recollect. Unfortunately it was also cold and shaky hands make for bad photography. So while it was somewhat memorable, it wasn’t all that successful.
A hungry Andean aka Spectacled Bear noshing down on some yummy cucumbers
A rather grumpy looking Baboon, with his beautifully marked blue snout
A large Bornean Orangutan just swinging about
A magnificent (and huge) Great Hornbill, shot through its mesh enclosure
A rather sad-eyed Emperor Tamarin
A straw chewing Radiated Tortoise, out on a stroll
A Sumatran Cub enjoying his lunch
Looks like Human aren’t the only ones with dirty habits, as this Great Sumatran Orangutan shows!
An interestingly spotted Salvador’s Monitor lizard
Still I’ve picked out a few worth publishing from the batch. Certainly a few gems in there I’m happy to add to the collection. Hopefully next time, if there ever is one, I’ll do the Zoo and its “Islands” justice.
A young Great Sumatran Orangutan
A pair of Radiated Tortoises
A vividly coloured Caiman Lizard
A gorgeous Blue Morpho Butterfly perched on a branch overhead
A beautifully camouflaged green Dart Frog
A pair of vibrant blue Dart Frogs
I wish I had more to say on the visit. But time and other factors nudge me away from reminiscing. So hopefully these few shots speak for themselves.
