A Day at the Zoo

When my Aunt Carolyn was in town earlier this month, my Mom took us both to the Jacksonville Zoo . Mom got us the deluxe tickets so we could see the new exhibits — Stingray Bay, the butterfly enclosure, and the dinosaurs. Here are the best pictures from our adventure.

The butterfly enclosure was teeming with tiny beauty.

This Monarch will be the model for my next Zen-tangle.

Yikes! A T-Rex! These dinosaurs sense your movement, then start growling at you.

A Zen moment. This was taken through a hedge wall looking into the Asia exhibit.
