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