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.
All dressed up
Pictures from the zoo in late September.
I was looking in the spoonbill exhibit and noticed a wild spoonbill on top of the exhibit looking in. I think he wanted to join the party inside for some treats.
Some wild birds at the zoo: a Carolina wren, 2 black vultures preening each other, a house sparrow working on a nest in the gift shop sign and a baby duck in one of the ponds.
Elephants playing in the first picture with the 3 legged impala watching.
Grumpy old bird (that was just born this spring). Marabou stork.
Making faces with Mom.
Showing off on a tree branch.
I was tempted to join these ladies who looked like they were having too much fun but I didn’t have the right color shirt or hat on.

Another fun morning watching the orangutans playing at Lowry Park zoo.
It’s rare to see the mom and baby orangutan this close to the glass. The baby was very entertained by pressing her face up to the glass.
Everyday activities for the orangutans.
The baby chimp was out playing by herself.
The two baby elephants are finally growing up.
I went back to Lowry Park zoo early on a Sunday morning to see the baby tiger cub. The baby was not out that morning so the dad was out alone having a snack. He seemed to be enjoying it. He kept showing it off.
