So I went to the fort worth zoo this past weekend and it was a blast. I have not felt like a kid in so long. I went to the zoo to practice some animal and wildlife shots and did just that. My memories of the zoo are pretty scarce. I saw so many animals and don’t remember walking through the zoo as a kid. In fact, my feet were pretty sore from running around (in excitement I guess). I saw the usual lions, bears, monkeys, giraffes, and elephants, but did not get to see the tigers. For whatever reason, they kept them locked up for the day. That was pretty disappointing.We did manage to see a bit of the male lion (sleeping) and the female lion and her four new baby cubs. The cubs were really adorable and kept their mother quite busy. They were running all over the place and chasing one another. Additionally, I did see a lot of other fascinating animals like a ton of baby penguins, hundreds of exotic reptiles. At the end of the day I had taken roughly 1300 pictures. Obviously, not all of them turned out good, but many did especially of the baby cubs and their mother. One in particular had a dub cuddled up in the mother’s arms. I remember when this happened, several other photographers and my self began snapping away at the precious moment. All you could hear was “awwww” from the other spectators and the rapid firing and clicking of shutters being opened and closed. All in all, it made for a great day and the weather was perfect!
Guess everyone was quite sleepy!
