October 24, 2015 … to the zoo

Rarely do I do zoo photos.


Otters waiting for fish to arrive

Yesterday, however, the school where our grandchildren Maggie and Cooper attend had a “teacher only” day. I volunteered to look after them for a few hours and asked them what they would like to do. They voted for the zoo.  And so it came to pass.


Capuchin monkey threatens to blow the place up with his mortar unless bananas are delivered immediately.

Wellington’s zoo is small, but well presented, and as zoos go, is among the more humane in the space it provides its animals.

Not every activity in the zoo is related to animals, and Cooper liked the recycling exhibit which gave him a great drum set to play.


Golden Lion Tamarin

I enjoyed watching the smaller primates at play and the Golden Lion Tamarin is amongst the most photogenic.

That’s all for now.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
