A Friday Evening in August

Yesterday afternoon, hubby got off work a little early and we headed down to the Cincinnati Zoo.  

The humidity has been low the last couple of days, so it was a perfect afternoon to be outside.  

With a season pass, you don't feel like you need to see everything all in one day.

Typically, we get there in the morning and the animals are very active.  Yesterday, the animals were mostly sleeping or in a very relaxed state.

Some of the birds were strutting about showing off their pretty feathers.

The meerkats were busy digging their tunnels and appeared very alert.

But, my favorite reason for going to the zoo, are the beautiful gardens and botanical specimens.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!


Linking up with Eileen for her Saturday's Critters.
