We’re going to the zoo

Paignton Zoo, to be precise, and yes you can come too.

The light wasn't great today, but the sun came out just as we arrived, and lit up the flamingo pool

This orangutan seemed to have weighty matters on his mind

As did this gorilla.

I love the contrast between the sun-lit flowers and the overcast skies

I also liked the beautiful colours of this peanhen against the autumn foliage

Vertiginous snack for a giraffe

I got lucky with the notoriously shy red panda

Not a great quality picture, but I love this moment of tenderness between mother and baby

    Thanks. He’s beautiful isn’t he? They’d lured him down with fresh bamboo 🙂 Paignton’s pretty good for being able to get good, fence-free photos with a little bit of manouvering.
