Detroit Zoo Visit 4/23/2010

Hello everyone,

This is my first full visit to the zoo since late Summer of last year. I did a mini visit last month, but I do not count that lol.

Here are my photos from today. I am way way behind in posting my pictures.

I have obtained a Canon EOS 10D with a 75-300mm lens. Most are from this camera, the other from my tiny wonder Canon SD1100. To see more, please visit my flicker account. To see a bigger picture click on it. (Then you can browse my other pictures too.)

Ducks and Geese are active with breading season. Random take off’s and chases. I was lucky to catch part of them.

I forget exactly a girl was starting to chase them or just me near by so he started squawking or hissing at her and towards us.

Detroit ZooMance tonight was Wonderful!! 7/24/08

 I sure hope they do it again next year, and hopefully more than one!! With more advertising this event should become even more popular! It was nice not having kids at the zoo. Nice and quiet. (ZooMance is 21+ also for the bar by Rackham Fountain.)

I took a ton of pictures, but have to be at work early so I will post them later. I got some new pics and video’s of things I never saw there before and was treated to.

Here are the Male and Female Blue Swallow Tanager’s on the trellace in front of the Chrysalis. Notice all the greenery gone? So tragic it was cut down.

The Camera was on a round standing table with a black table cloth, on the right is one of the tables with umbrellas from by the ZooFari Market. The white tent was where the booze was. Of course, you could walk around too!
