I’m Getting A Complex

We took a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo with the granddaughters and DIL Amber.  I was looking forward to a great time with them and I was determined to get some great pictures of the wildlife on display.  I was determined to make Judy envious.

It was a cool day, the girls were dressed warmly.

Little Rebekah was snug as a bug in a rug in her stroller.

There were some peacocks walking around the zoo.  I tried to get a good picture, but the peacock
turned away from me as I snapped.

We went to see the lions, I thought I’d get some good shots.

The lioness started to get up, I was ready.

Then she presented me her best side.

Little Rebekah was starting to wonder why I was getting frustrated.

the Penguins, more of the same.

Even the Pink Flamingos gave me the cold “shoulder”.

Finally, at the Gorilla cage, I thought I’d have a chance to get some good pictures.  When the gorilla saw me, he put his head on his hands and was thinking as he eye-balled me.

Then, he climbed down, went outside and…you guessed it.

Taylor and Kierra decided to help me and held this animal steady so I could get a good shot.  They were afraid I was getting a complex…

There were many other animals, but all I got was more butt shots.  Fortunately, I was able to snap a facial picture of these three little cute animals.

Sadly, today was our last day with the girls.  Tomorrow we head over to New Jersey and see our other granddaughter, Anabelle!

  2. They are adorable and look like they were having fun in spite of the cold and butt shots. I love zoos and could visit one in every city.

  5. You certainly are being entertained. What a wonderful day you had with the kiddies? I'm wondering what you were wearing why none of the animals wanted to look at you.

  8. The Grandkids looked like they were having fun just being at the Zoo with you and Marti. As for your photography it seems that the animals thought it has come to a big ending. Be Safe and Enjoy!
