Here's some new pictures~
Yes, that's right. I went on a zoo trip with a two year old. It was for my very good friend Jenny and her nephew. I get a guest in for free with my membership, and two year olds are already free so, win win.
I think this is the first time that I've experienced a two year old at the zoo, and it's been a long time since I've taken anyone under 18? 10? to the zoo.

But it wasn't that bad of an experience. 
We only made it through half of the zoo, because it was getting close to nap time for the kid.
But we did get to see black bears, caught a glimpse of the bobcat, and then all of his attention was on any fishes that we happened to see. They were right there and he could see them so he was pretty happy to see something, and the ducks. My biggest hope was to get a picture of him (yeah I took pictures of a human!) next to a polar bear for his mom, because she loves polar bears. Thankfully Conrad had decided to take a nap right next to the window in the shade. The kid made his way up to Conrad, and I managed to get a picture of him and a gigantic polar bear! He also found the penguins entertaining too because they were right there next to the glass where he could see them. Didn't spend too long around Steller cove or big cats, mostly because he wouldn't be able to see anything, and it was getting close to nap time.

That was about all we manged to see. Then we had lunch and I stopped by the volunteer photo team members who were out selling buttons & magnets and got a few magnets after chatting with the volunteers.

Still trying to catch a carcass feeding with one of the carnivores. I've managed to catch condors on their carcass, but I haven't had much luck with lions, painted dogs or any of the other carnivores.

I'm Deidre! I love taking pictures of animals, nature, landscapes and anything that happens to catch my eye.

My photographic goal at the moment is to hopefully aid wildlife biologists with my photography or become a staff photographer for an accredited, zoo or sanctuary.

My future career plans include first obtaining a biology degree, doing a handful of internships and become a zookeeper at an accredited zoo.
Super long time goal includes starting up a sanctuary.

Thanks so much for the fave :). I see you are interested in ground hornbills, so I just wanted to tell you that I plan to post a few more photos of the birds in my gallery if you're interested. Have a good day :D

I did a really short behavioral study (nothing super scientific) on captive hornbills in a mixed species exhibit. So they have become a favorite of mine. And I got to hang out with a northern ground hornbill, that was awesome.
I would LOVE to see these guys in the wild some day.
