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.
