Winter at the zoo

The baby primates are growing up quickly, out playing on their own.

I caught the youngest elephants playing a while before they noticed someone else was watching them. It was great to see them running around, playing together.

A lazy one.

A hooded merganser couple swimming close to the glass in the manatee exhibit. It’s rare to see them this close.

It’s nice to go the the zoo when the weather is cool. The animals are active and I don’t feel like I’m going to pass out.

Faces only a Mother could love

The orangutan babies are very popular with the kids at Zoo Tampa.

It’s rare to see the babies near Dad but this one was hanging out with him.

More shots of the baby Colobus monkey. He was all white fuzz a few weeks earlier.

The gibbon baby was also a hit. It was tough getting shots of the baby against the parent and into the sun so these are a little blown out.
