On our trip to Florida we visited the Metro Zoo in Miami. There were no traditional cages. Just lot of open space with wild animals roaming around and as you walk the grounds, it gives you the illusion that you are just kin of roaming around with them. It was pretty cool. Except it wasn't really cool at all. It was like 98 degrees with 100 humidity which just about kills a person's ability to enjoy anything. Ug. However, we braved it anyway and to our surprise, the animals were active just the same. it was pretty awesome.
So, in case you didn't know this about me, I have a real thing for primates.
Especially Mountain Gorillas. In this case there was a viewing window that offered shade for the gorillas so a few were sitting together right there on the other side of the window. Wow. There was a female and the silver back. Holy Primate! They were enormous and sooooo incredible beautiful. Having a gorilla a mere 3 feet away for you, looking right into your eyes is an incredible experience. In nearly 100 degree heat, the family wasn't nearly as taken as I was. I could have sat there all day (even dripping sweat) just watching them and snapping photos.
Even through a thick (and filthy) window I got some pretty neat shots.
What did you capture this week that has you captivated?
