A Day at the Zoo

January 18th, 2009

Bearded Barbet

For at least the last thirteen years, my little family has maintained a membership at the zoo.  For a nominal fee we gain unlimited visits.  This comes in really handy for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is all of the entertainment value when you can’t afford anything else.

Today was absolutetly gorgeous at around 65F with a light breeze and not a cloud in the sky.  It being a late Sunday afternoon, there wasn’t much of a croud to speak of.  We had the run of the place and I sketched everything from a bearded barbet to a wild moira.

    You captured such humor and fun in your bird – love that! and the rhino is well done too. Love zoos – thanks for sharing your day.

    The bird just makes me smile and laugh out loud. It seems to say, “My world is good!!!” Not sure I understand the wild moira…never seen one. Looks more like a fun moira to me. All in the eyes of the holder I guess.
