I took a long walk at the zoo yesterday. I wanted to see the new home for the tigers and I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. The new facility has a viewing building that is completely surrounded by glass making picture taking almost impossible. There was another viewing spot away from that shelter but, it was surrounded by a high, chain-link fence, also bad for photo taking. So, I continued on my walk and found other things to photograph like this very cooperative Great Egret.
This Black Crowned Night Heron was also a perfect model sitting very still in the reeds.
And, I spotted this Blue Heron just outside the zoo hiding in the reeds around the lagoon. So, the birds won out on this picture taking expedition.
