On Monday, Zak and I headed out for a trip to the Bronx Zoo. We both absolutely love the zoo, and after realizing we hadn't been all summer, we put the trip high on our to do list. It was kind of the perfect zoo trip. The weather was cloudy and cool but not rainy, it wasn't crowded at all, and we got to walk around almost the whole zoo and see nearly everything (I was wearing my pedometer, we walked about 7 miles total!). I have way too many photos of animals and myself, so "bear" with me (puns!). Highlights were a butterfly landing on my hand in the butterfly garden, seeing a very sleepy tiger up close, and making a new peacock friend (see the last photo).
(This turtle had somehow managed to perch himself on this little statue of a dragonfly, making himself look like a part of the scenery!)
