My Trip to the Zoo December 30th, 2007

I was lucky enough to get my camera really close to a still butterfly:

The butterfly was facing backwards so I had to reach around around with my arm. I wish I could have gotten the face better, but I think it is a very nice pic. And thanks to the comment on this photo on Flickr, you know who you are!

I never checked out the room to the left in the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery, after seeing people below the fish tank and was pleasantly greeted by this going in that room.

I also found this very beautiful picture on the wall. You loose some in the photograph

I even found wild coffee growing in the butterfly garden for us coffee lovers!

I have more to post, but I do not want to make this too long. I will post again within the next several days, one includes a non-native bird to the zoo.
