Summer Outings – Melbourne Zoo

We recently we excused from dog sitting duties and managed to escape the day, so we headed to the Royal Melbourne Zoo, we have not been there in many, many years. It was a gorgeous day, sunny but not too hot and we arrived just before lunch and made our way from one exhibit to the next.

Unfortunately the lions, gorillas and wild dogs were a no show, I got a brief glimpse of a Sumatran tiger, before he wandered off in his jungle. I am all for animal conservation, but it does make it damn difficult to see, let alone photograph some of the animals! I lingered along time at the Elephants and Meerkats and the Butterfly House………so I will given them each their own post.

Til next time, happy snapping…
