At the Knoxville Zoo

Last Thursday I too a day and visited the Zoo, while not as good as the Columbus zoo for animals the Knoxville zoo has a superb landscaping crew and the flowers and grasses are, to me more exciting than the animals. Don’t get me wrong its an excellent zoo, but the admission fee of $19.95 and $5.00 for parking for each adult its a bit steep, luckily I have a membership to the Columbus zoo and got in free. Tomorrow I’ll be doing Flower Friday from the zoo.. 🙂

I used both my Nikon D50 w/ the Sigma 175-500mm and my Nikon D7000 w/ the Sigma 18-200mm. For some reason the D50 just works better with the long lens.

Black and White Tuesday, at the Knoxville Zoo

Nothing better than a day at the zoo, even with the crowds of people and kids wakling in front of you while trying to get a pic. Oh well, it is a zoo after all.. 😉

Sunday Stills: Backs of Things

I went to the archives this week in search of rear views from my favorite zoos…

The Black Bear pic was from Cades Cove National park in the Smokey Mountains and not in a zoo..
