A Day at the Zoo
I have to start with the peacocks cause they are gorgeous! Look at the colour! That brilliant blue. Wow....There were three, or was it four male peacocks in the enclosure. The first time we were there, one of the males spread his plumage. Then the next time we were there, three of them spread their beautiful feathers. What a sight. They were trying to impress the females.
Look at those feathers. I adjusted the contrast for this photo. If not, the colour would not come out so nicely.
A close up look at the plumage. Also adjusted the contrast for this picture.
The Japanese serow with the twisted horn. I think it is the Japanese serow.
A sea turtle swimming away. There were three species of turtles in that aquarium itself. I have no idea which one this is.
Penguin having fun
The penguins enjoying the cool water.
Pink flamingos. They had a large mirror installed at one part of the enclosure. I wonder what it is for. To fool the birds into thinking there is a large group of them?
Hippo's head. It was gigantic! There were two of them I think. I wanted it to open it's huge mouth for me, but it didn't.
Up, close and personal with a male mandrill's mouth. Contrast adjusted. Too much reflection on the glass wall.
Up, close and personal with a male mandrill's ass. Contrast adjusted. Again, too much reflection.
Crocodile or aligator? Please someone tell me. I think it is a croc.
Interesting sea/fresh water animal. Is it a toad species? Or something else? Contrast / brightness adjusted for this picture.
Aren't my feet pretty? Lar Gibbon
Looking out through the glass wall. Lar Gibbon or White handed gibbon
Such a sad picture. The cage...the solitary figure huddled at the corner. A beautiful day outside but trapped inside. Lar Gibbon
