Thank you for commenting. Those are also some that I liked best. That last image is actually a Gibbon. The photo ops for the Gorillas were not too good this day. The surprise for me was the Great Blue Heron. I don't believe it's on the zoo roster. I think it dropped by for the fish in the zoo pond.

Thank you Richard. Africa and other parts of the world are represented at the zoo. We even missed the the big cats display. One of the resident Malaysian Tigers is expecting new arrivals any day(if not already born). I wish a that I could tour the west.😊

Thank you very much, Tony. The only one I chose for the sequence was the headline goat. The rest were added close to the order they were taken. These were basically the photos that I liked the best from the visit. There were others I might have posted but once I got to the max, I stopped. I am glad that you enjoyed viewing them.

The goat photo is a beauty but the others show some visual charm too . My brothers neighbor has a koi pond that attracts egrets, great blue herons and an osprey . That could get expensive !

Thanks much. When I processed the got photo, it was over exposed. But after I processed it turned out OK and I decided it was my favorite. The zoos pond has lots of fish in it. That's the first time that I have seen the Heron there. I don't know if the zoo staff were aware of it, but it was right next to an observation point where people feed the fish. I was really surprised to see it there. There were many people around.
