Chilly penguin posing nicely
Quickly drawn sketches before my fingers went numb...there was also a heron hanging out with the penguins.
Egyptian Box Turtles in the reptile house
It was nice and warm in the reptile exhibit, and we both did longer sketches there.
One of the hippos was out and about. No sketching -- too cold!
Nor did I try to draw this lovely Aplomado Falcon
We did pause at the Komodo Dragon exhibit, though:
The grizzly area has a heated viewing shelter, but the bears weren't near it, they were far away where it was too cold to draw them.
My favorite sketches of the day were inside the VERY WARM tropical rainforest building -- the snake was easy as it didn't move, but the more lively toucan was challenging and fun.
