11/4/07 Zoo Trip

I went to the zoo yesterday. I decided to leave home my HP PhotoSmart R727 6.x MP 3x Digital Camera for my Olympus 4MP Digital Camera with a 10x zoom to be able to see if I could capture the animals better with the zoom and hope the engine in the camera was better. It seems to be in most areas, but certain lighting conditions caused blurriness with the optical zoom over around 5x.

The hummingbirds are back at the zoo and got some really good shots with them there.

The Wolverine’s were decked out for the MSU and U of M game! Even caught one standing up when a zoo keeper went by in a bike.

I had a long pleasant talk with the two Australian Outback along with the Zoo Keeper Director. Got one sleeping here and the one by the barrow is the youngest baby.

Leamers are almost always moving and are not in a good posing position. This one gave me the opportunity. Even someone commented he/she did.

The Tigers were busy getting ready to pose then people watch then I am sure do what all cats do, sleep.

Then off to the Aviary/

These are kind of skiddish, but with their red eyes they kind of have a prehistoric personality. If I had a bad dream with birds attacking it would be these.

Then last but not least the Butterfly Gardens.

I did not go in the order of the way I went through the zoo. Please use the flicker thing on the left to go to my account and look at the rest I took. I hope I can get more people interested in the zoo and to come and visit and for though’s who cannot, can from their comfort of their own home. Please help promote this site! I would like to see this site get some regular visitors. – Eric
