Drizzly Day at Zoo Atlanta   1 comment

While in Atlanta, we went to Zoo Atlanta. Unfortunately, it was a fairly cool, drizzly day. Many animals were off exhibit, either due to the season or the weather.

The flamingos were huddled together.

I’ve become a fan of rhinoceroses. This one is a black rhino.

A baby was sleeping in a hamock–I had to do some weird stretches to take a photo.

The tiger enclosure was initially empty. We stood and examined it. Was he hiding behind a tree? I let out a half-hearted “here kitty-kitty-kitty.” More to amuse myself more than anything. We heard a roar. I tried again, “here kitty-kitty-kitty.” And he walked out.
He Came to See Me!!!

Quite the handsome tiger.

After a brief visit, he went back into his off-exhibit area.
Thanks for Seeing Us, Mr. Tiger!
