day one, at the zoo

we've come back safe and sound (and maybe a little sunburned on our cheeks) from visiting the zoo and sea world in san diego. i've selected some photos to share but you are also more than welcome to see some of our older photos from our visit last year (here, there, everywhere).

i found a little growling bear.

Photobucket
a panda bear munches on his favorite snack.

Photobucket
swamp monkeys at grooming time.

Photobucket
i was trying to photograph a bee. i still like the photo.

Photobucket
two polar bears walking about (and one hoping to get it on..actually, he does, later. at least they had the 'decency' to go somewhere a little less public) :)

Photobucket
and one cooling down in the water (and not at all interested in what the other two are doing).

Photobucket
beautiful brown colors on a few arctic ducks.

Photobucket
a stellar sea eagle (i only wish i got a better photo).

Photobucket
no laughs from this sleeping hyena.

Photobucket
another sleepy creature, the skull crushing jaguar.

Photobucket
the mighty elephant.

Photobucket
oh dear, i have forgotten what this cute little baby is, my apologies! :)

Photobucket
a pair of rhinos, lazing about (one looks like he has the sniffles).

Photobucket
amazing how tall even young giraffes are.

Photobucket
i tried my best to get good photos of these beautiful owls (i was so happy to see them!) so this is my proof that they were there.

the prettiest snakes (to me) at the reptile house, both pythons i believe.
