For my birthday, hubby took off work and we all went to the Cincinnati Zoo for the day.
I so enjoy going to the zoo this time of the year. The tulips are in bloom and the flowering trees are starting to show their springtime beauty.
The birds were sweetly chirping in their colorfully adorned perches.
Shades of pink were a sight to see in both flora and fauna.
A proud papa...
showed off his new cub.
The Lion wasn't the only beast showing it's pride.
This peacock was all show with his elegant feathers.
I tried to get a good photo of the red panda, but he was camera shy.
Or, perhaps just admiring the flowers like the rest of the guests.
White monkeys were hanging out enjoying their view and taking a rest from their play.
The tulips and flowering trees really were the show stoppers though.
Hubby and dear son gave me a new zoom lens for my camera. I had fun playing around with it today and experimenting with different shots.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to the Cincinnati Zoo.
You didn't even have to put on your gym shoes.
