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.
Looks like Human aren’t the only ones with dirty habits, as this Great Sumatran Orangutan shows!
A magnificent (and huge) Great Hornbill, shot through its mesh enclosure
A straw chewing Radiated Tortoise, out on a stroll
A hungry Andean aka Spectacled Bear noshing down on some yummy cucumbers
An interestingly spotted Salvador’s Monitor lizard
A Sumatran Cub enjoying his lunch
A large Bornean Orangutan just swinging about
A rather sad-eyed Emperor Tamarin
A rather grumpy looking Baboon, with his beautifully marked blue snout
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 beautifully camouflaged green Dart Frog
A gorgeous Blue Morpho Butterfly perched on a branch overhead
A vividly coloured Caiman Lizard
A young Great Sumatran Orangutan
A pair of Radiated Tortoises
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.
