A day at the zoo.

I was admiring this Red Panda from far above and then suddenly he climbed right up to my level to let me get a good shot with my 50mm lens.

These Kori Bustard birds are supposed to be shy, but this one came over to meet me and show me his puffed-out chest feathers. Could we call that flirting?

Lately, I've been thinking about my spirit animal and although I haven't decided yet, I want to put the Flamingo on my short list for their yogic abilities. These pink, social birds can stand on one foot for up to an hour at a time and like to take naps with their beaks tucked under their wings. I think they have a lot they could teach me.
