Day at the zoo


The weather has been a bit up and down here lately, mostly down being that it’s still winter, but near the end of January it was actually quite warm. So, since it was a nice day and Katie wanted to test out one of her new lenses, we headed out to the zoo.

First, we went to see one of my personal favorites – lemurs! Specifically, ring-tailed lemurs.

After those guys, we headed over to see the big cats. I didn’t get many photos of them though because it was quite crowded around their viewing areas. The next ones that I took the most pictures of were the red pandas.

Of course, one of them was sleeping, but even sleeping it was adorable.

Then it was off to another one of my favorites – Rockhopper Penguins!

This guy was posing for everyone.

Those are some of the best ones of the ones that I took, I think, but the rest are on my flickr.

Phantom Phriday Vol. 11


This week’s Phantom Phriday is cutting it a little close to being out of Friday, so here’s a quick post featuring Aya and Rio!

Aya is really starting to take after Rio. She copies Rio if she sees her doing something, like flopping over like this.


She’s also started to bring Rio toys that Rio loves playing with (milk rings and brightly coloured strings), which makes her look more like Rio’s servant. I’m sure Rio thinks of her as that anyway, haha.


I took some footage of the two playing around, so enjoy and happy Friday! (what’s left of it anyway..!)
