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.)

What is that new contraption you are holding? Why it is my Canon EOS 10D.

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.
