The leopard at the National Zoological Gardens in Pretoria is one of my favorite and most willing subjects. This is a black and white edit of one of the photos I took during today’s Zoo Fun Walk.
A peacock shows the beauty of its tail in the morning sun. What a glorious green against the red of the African soil!
This picture shows very clearly why the black rhino is also called hook-lipped. The triangular shape of the upper lip can almost be used like a finger to carefully pick branches from the ground or leaves from scrubs.
Happy World Rhino Day 2019!
A family of lion-tailed maqaques in the National Zoological Gardens in Pretoria. Mommy was holding her baby when daddy came along to have a look at his offspring. Mommy allowed a brief touch and then went on to sit somewhere else with her young. Safety first!
I don’t care who you are, the pressure is on to go to the next task immediately. What happened to the days of hanging out in the hammock all afternoon?
