Went to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at the Como Zoo in Minneapolis today and these are two of what I found there. I will post some more later.

Talk about lens condensation, this place reminded me of Viet Nam, but I finally got it to go away.

ISO 400, PEF, FA*28-70 Pentax 2.8

First some banana leaves that I thought looked nice!


Next, a sloth sleeping in the crotch of a tree!

They had some cool flowers there on display also in the extremely tropical area!

Lovely colours and light, the banana tree does look nice, the tree and sloth are great. The orchid is beautiful.

All are cool. The sloth in the tree is lots of fun, but I love the banana leaves - I can never quite get that light through the leaves right.

You really show that there are other subjects than tigers and buffaloos in a zoo. Very nice result.
