you will have to settle for my few paltry pics
This is a nest in one of the aviaries at the San Diego Zoo. you can sort of see Junior .
all the pics of ME with a Lorikeet hat are on John's camera. I can happily spend all day in this aviary just feeding the little buggers
Obligatory cute baby animal shot complete with big sister
Obligatory cute baby twin animal shot. these are wild deer roaming the Safari Park.
one posed very nicely at the edge of the road
Mom. she was across the street where the noms were better but eventually managed to bring the youngsters over too
CA condors. lunch that day was cow spleen. yum. these will be released in the wild as soon as they have grown up
this is Gao Gao, the STUD. his last three progeny have been conceived the old fashioned way and number 4 may soon be on the way. when you factor in the fact that girl pandas only get frisky for about 3 days TOTAL every 24-36 months.. that's quite an accomplishment.
This is Winston. Winston is like 124 years old. he is ALSO the a famous Hollywood star. look closely. he was the model/stand in for ET
okay this was way cool, and a part of the park that was not there when we lived in SD 10 years ago. it is a mock up of the La Brea Tar pits and the level of 'tar' raises and lowers on a cycle so you can watch how critters got trapped and turned into Shell's greatest asset.
This is Junior..and dammit but I forget his name. he's almost 3 and will heading to China soon to start making babies of his own
Final obligatory cute fuzzy baby pic. this little guy was only about 3 days old.
There are other pics and I will most likely post them on FB at some time. and we realized long about dinner time our last day at Disneyland that neither of us took a single picture at all. oops...
While the weather was less than amazing.. 60s and windy every day, we did enjoy the trip, I did NOT trip, fall, break or bruise a single square inch of my body and generally was able to forget he still has another 9 months before he can come home. *sigh* we can do this....
