This is what you see first when you walk into the rainforest exhibit at our local zoo. I could watch this waterfall for hours.
Our son and his wife love to visit the larger zoos around the US. Their favorites are the ones which have made provisions for the animals to live in the closest environment possible to their own natural habitats.
I love going to the zoo, and I can remember going since I was very little. Every time I would go, the lions would always be laying behind some bushes at the side of the enclosure. Maybe once in a while, the female would poke her head up.
I took this picture in the greenhouse at the Cleveland Metroparks zoo. I plan to blow it up and print it out to hang on my wall. I would love to have a little place in my backyard like this!
This is a photo I took in my local metro parks. This bench was overlooking a lake and it looked so peaceful. I took the shot, and some of my friends have said it looks like a painting almost.
This is at a spot in the metro-parks where in the evening you can hear really sad bird calls. It is a very melancholy place.
We were at the zoo and a baby giraffe came over to check us out, and I caught a pic of my son and the giraffe looking at each other.
This is a shot in the Cleveland Metroparks. There is a walkway through the trees at the zoo and this is a shot of one of the bridges on that walkway.
I was at my zoo, watching the orangutans, and one of them was playing peek a boo with a little girl who was watching them. It was so sweet!
We were at Lakewood Park and the skyline of Cleveland was just gorgeous.
