The Smithsonian's National Zoo is only 40 minutes away from Laurel but I often forget just how much fun it can be. I spent a couple of hours at the zoo this afternoon. It was cold but the sun was shining and the cats were active. I should have brought along my tripod. My big 300 mm lens was hard to hold steady in the wind.
"Scared yet kid?"
A few more shots are over on my Flickr page here. Take a break from leftovers and go to the zoo.
