I didn't get back to try it again until two days ago:
This Blue-Bellied Roller perched on a twig just a couple feet from me. Probably waiting for an opening to peck the flesh off my skull.
Mr. Gorilla struck a nice figure drawing class pose. I'd say this is my double-plus good drawing of the day.
The Dallas Zoo did a big expansion to give the large animals more roaming space. The down side is that they tend to loiter at the farthest away reaches of that space. I should have brought binoculars to see the elephants. The giraffes would come up close, however, because you could feed them lettuce at a special station.
Andean Condor doing a Bela Lugosi impression.
This tortoise barked at me.
