These pictures were taken a while ago – December 2018 to be more precise – But sometimes life just gets in the way and I never got around to posting them. I suppose better late than never? (Returning readers are probably experiencing an intense feeling of deja vu right now).

I wish I had more shots to share – particularly of the big cats – But between the cold and being bit rusty with the old SLR it wasn’t one of my best days shooting at the Zoo. Still as always I have to recommend that anyone who has the chance go check out London ZSL. And if you’re a frequent visitor go with someone special who hasn’t been before. It’s a great experience to see someone you love share something new with you that you love. I got to take someone this trip and it certainly made the whole experience fresh and fun for me : )
Don’t get me wrong, I love a solo day of shooting, but things are so much more special when you share them with someone special. So in that spirit I’m happy to share some of our sights with you.

As always I shall endeavour to return sooner rather later with more content. But I hope these shots from the London Zoo serve to sate some of your appetites.
Right, well, another Zoo post… I’m really making a habit of these aren’t I? Well… No regrets!!! : D
Here are some of my favourite shots from a visit to Marwell Zoo, in the English county of Hampshire. Tickets were quite affordable, compared to say ZSL, but then it was quite a drive away to get to. It wasn’t the sunny day one hopes for on a visit to the Zoo, but then it is England ; p

Quite honestly, Marwell was amazing. The animals had great enclosures and I’m sure during the summer it must be quite a sight to see many of them roaming in shared habitats. If you love near by or are planning a trip in that direction, take a day and go. You won’t regret it.
A few days ago I put up pictures form my visit to the London Zoo, which made me realize that I hadn’t shared my shots from my visit to the Delhi Zoo a couple of years back, so I looked through my archives and picked out some old shots to share.
Sadly I didn’t get nearly as many shots as I wanted because it was so hot that half the animals were inside their draped cages with air coolers on ; p
What struck me comparing the pictures from the two visits was that while the London Zoo is far better maintained, the Delhi Zoo isn’t all that far off. Delhi definitely had a larger collection of exotic animals, especially the big cats!
One of my favorite birds in the world…
Here’s the beautiful big cat, just lounging in his shallow pool…
I’m just chillin’… Hanging out…
That is NOT a friendly smile…
I loooooove this tree
Just out for a walk with his buddy
Here’s one resident the London Zoo isn’t privy to…
When it comes to animals (by which I don’t mean pets but rather wildlife) I seem to revert to my 10-year-old self. I have always loved going to the Zoo and today I finally visited the London Zoo, having been meaning to go for ages. It was a really great day – walking around for hours and taking hundreds of photographs. Though next time I really will make sure not to go on a Bank holiday. The place was positively packed with tourists and families enjoying a day out in the beautiful sunshine.
I’m happy to share some of the better pictures form the day – But if you haven’t been before I recommend you check out the Zoo for yourself : )
I wonder what he’s praying for?
How’s the Air up there?
What beautiful color
Come at me Bro!
Sticking his tongue out at me. Cheeky bugger isn’t he?
Look, it’s Timon!
