"Zoo Pics"


Brownsville, US
          

The kids were out of school for a day last week, so we headed to the Memphis Zoo. It was an overcast day, perfect for taking photos of the kids and animals. I saw a couple of more people further down the board who were there last week, too. I wonder if we were all there the same day. The West African Crowned Crane has been renamed the "Adelaide Bird" for my daughter, because her hair used to stick up just like the bird's when she was a baby. That's the first thing she wants to see each time we go.

Thanks,

Lee Anne

Great set and well done. Yes cloudy days yield great zoo weather.

These look like they are a little too much orange cast to them. What White Balance setting did you use? Cloudy is typically perfect but shade can be too much.
