Birds on a Wire.. and lots of other animals

We had a fab trip out to the zoo yesterday. I love photographing animals. If I was a more patient person, I'd have been a wildlife photographer, but I would rather not wait for 3 days for a glimpse of my subject. I took hundreds of pictures and then spent a pleasant evening sorting through them.

Here then are my birds on  a wire for Rinda's Summer Scavenge Hunt. Much more beautiful than my previous pigeon on a phone line, I think you'll agree.

We saw lots of other very unusual animals too. It's a good breeding zoo with an excellent educational programme. If you're not an animal lover then you're welcome to click away now. I am, though, and I'm quite proud of some of these pictures. The highlight of the day for me was snagging a photo of fruit bats in flight - very very quick and hard to photograph. For the kids it was the chance to feed the giraffes.

As we left through the gift shop I grabbed another from Rinda's list - a rack of postcards.

You have great action shots there - and just the place for birds on a wire :).

I love the lemur photos. Great composition. I also love taking photos at the zoo.
