The zoos of Palm Beach County

What a great week I had! I took this past week off and I spent the entire time doing things I enjoy with people I enjoy. I guess some might call it a staycation but I won't because that word was officially banned in Lake Superior State University's 2009 List of Banished Words. For those interested, the 2010 list contains words such as sexting, bromance & chillaxin'.

Anyhoo (just had to look that up... suprisingly never banned; see the complete list here), the clear theme of this week was zoos. My first photography outing this week was Palm Beach Zoo with my buddy Art.

Actually, this was my first and second outing; since we didn't see enough the four hours we were there last Sunday, we went back on Wednesday for another four hours. It's amazing how long I can stand in one spot and take 40 pictures of the same subject.... and I'm happy as can be if one of those comes out the way I want it. I'm pretty sure I took at least 300 pictures each day I went out so some are bound to come out good, right? Well, I did get some nice shots, from the very photographic blue and yellow macaws to the bald eagle that I somehow captured from behind the display, through a fence and trees.

Keeping with that trend, I ended up with a nice shot of the great green macaws, the hawks were amazing, and I also finally got a decent picture of a flamingo (suprisingly hard, right Art?). I even got a nice picture of this ibis, which you can find every three steps you take at the zoo.

One of the most interesting things to photograph were the jaguars, Nabalam and her one year old baby Maya. I actually think this is a pretty average picture; I stood there for a long time attempting to get a nice action shot... no luck this time.

The second zoo I visited this week was Lion Country Safari, with my friend from Leadership Palm Beach County (Class of 2008), Kelly.

We had a great time and, wow, the weather was amazing. I took 397 pictures yesterday but all of my favorites were of the sweet giraffes. Just go to my flickr photostream (link on right sidebar) and you can see all of my pictures of these guys but this is my favorite:

By the way, this zoo is only 10 minutes from my house and I finally broke down and got an annual pass.

Looking back on this week, if I did the the math (which I don't like to do on the weekends or vacations), I took well over 1,000 pictures. My very favorites, though, were of the Malayan Tigers at Palm Beach Zoo. Not sure which one this is... either Mata or Rimba (this is my my Palm Beach County photo of the week on DPC).
