adam has been asking me every day if i've dumped the photos from the zoo...we went about a week and a half ago! i'm a bad friend. sorry buddy.
anyway, i've finally got my act together so here we go.
the day was super hot and with school getting ready to start it was WAY crowded. (whose stupid idea was it anyway to go to the zoo??? oh yeah...mine. oops! hehe.) i was really excited at the beginning because i hadn't been all summer and i wanted to get some great shots...alas...just not in the cards. it was not a day for a small fry such as myself to get much of anything photo wise...and it was so hot, we just didn't want to stand around in the sun waiting for the crowds to move. :( so, we hit the highlights and favs and headed out of there to the cool air-conditioned car.
polly want a cracker? yeah i know. sorry...couldn't resist.
little big prairie dog somethings. as you can see, i paid very good attention to the signs. again. i'm zacchaeus. :) i couldn't get close.
my ultimate favorite animal at the zoo is a polar bear. i love to watch them swim and play and wave at the people. they just look like so much fun. our polar bears died last year...sad...so i had to be satisfied with this dude. at least he smiled for the camera! RIP polar bear buddies!
on to the big cats!!! LOVE these tigers! aren't they just gorgeous??? the st. louis zoo is pretty lucky. they have 5.
