A Day at the Zoo: Personal

Another "animal" post!  Haha... I realize my last post is about the Aquarium, and now it's the Zoo... but it's finally summer here in BC, so we've headed out and enjoyed the great weather and have been able to do a few outings here and there! (I promise the next post will most likely be wedding or portrait session related!) :)

Last weekend we headed off to the Vancouver Zoological Centre in Aldergrove, BC to explore, check out the animals and enjoy the gorgeous sunshine!  One of our friends' daughter had just turned 2, so this trip to the zoo was for her birthday! (Happy Birthday Rylin!) :)

I didn't realize till we started looking through the photos that a lot of the animals are either sleeping, or resting or lying down on the ground.  Well, I can't blame them, it was hot!  If I had the same fur coat as the lion I would definitely feel like I was melting too... :)

Here's some photos that Steve (my husband) and I took while walking through the zoo.
this guy greeted everyone with a "hello"...
Ostrich (funny legs) and a Capa Bara (he smiled for me)
Big kitty....
a Mara enjoying the sunshine...
a Llama (L) and a wild pig (R) both lying out in the sun...
Steve somehow managed to be "part of the exhibit" :)

gorgeous Peacock!  I love the colours!
