Default A day at the Zoo

Visited the National Zoo at Washington DC last weekend. Amazing place for animal lovers.

Here are some photos I like. All taken using my Pentax K-x with DA L 55-300mm lens hand-held.

7 months young lion cubs. There were total 7 of them. They were playing with each other all the time. Never bothered with all the crowd that was gathered to watch them.

Look at those expressions.
