Awesome! It's a nice little zoo isn't it? Hope the 'monkeys' (can't remember their name but I know they aren't really monkeys) behaved themselves for your grandkids. They were very much not family friendly last time my wife and I were there You got a much better shot of the fox than I ever have, was he standing on the little stump? Hope you enjoyed the visit. I usually go there just to see the tigers.

Yes, the arctic fox was on the stump-had to crop because they had a piece of plastic plumbing near the stump-didn't seem to serve any purpose. It was early so the zoo was not crowded. Monkeys were not family friendly but that was OK-the rest was good.

Ditto for the fox - a lovely portrait full of personality and detail.

Thanks for all the kind comments-have a lot more of the zoo but still learning this Chromebook-can't do much with the photo's so far. Need my wireless mouse-touch pad is tough to post process.

Love the fox. Great job on the monkey thru the glass and lighting situation.
