A Visit to the Zoo, part 2 of 2

Tina and I hit the Woodland Park Zoo on Sunday afternoon right during the raptor demonstration -- the birds are brought out one at a time, and fly from one trainer to another, or chase lures.  At times they would land on posts very close to where we were sitting.

This is a Red-tailed Hawk:

See yesterday's post for more raptor photos.

Next we visited the komodo dragon exhibit, where we were able to view a young dragon:

The youngster was quite active, and even climbed a tree:

Our last stop was at the reptile house, where I admired (and sketched) this Waxy Monkey Frog:

Here are the sketches I did -- flamingos:

The adult komodo dragon:

Box turtles who were swimming:

And the fabulous frog:

A fun impromptu outing indeed!

  1. Two days of great photos Alex, those raptors are incredible and that dragon looks so chilled.
