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.

The storks were resting near the camels this time.

Not sure what these are and are with the camels.

This is our male Siberian Tiger. The two females have to be kept separate, so the ladies are out in the day, and the male in the evening and night. The zookeeper said she hid a treat in the front corner. But, he briefly sniffed and roamed around looking or walking. He never got it when i was there. I asked what it was and it she said it was like gross hamburger kind of like horse meat.
