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!
