SkyWatch Friday

All my sky photos this week I took on a recent trip to the San Diego Zoo. If you look at the photo above, you will see a small deer standing on the rock in the bottom of the photo, towards the right. The elephant topiary was one of a pair at the entrance of the zoo.


Here I was taking the sky ride back which I knew would take me back to the exit at the end of the day.



Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

I love the San Diego Zoo, too. Have you visited their website? www.sandiegozoo.org
They have a Panda Cam, and an Ape Cam, an Elephant Cam, and a Polar Bear Cam. I love the Panda Cam, and have had some fun watching the Elephant and Ape Cams but I never seem to watch when the polar bears are visible.
Thanks for posting this. Wonderful memories of a wonderful place.

Great shots, It must be great to view down from there, right? :)

Sandy's witterings said...

Edinburgh zoo long ago gave up keeping an elephant on the grounds that they just didn't have the room to keep one kindly (good for them). I'm sure a topiary one would do instead - they've had plenty time to grow the bush by now.

A sky ride would be just the ticket at the end of a visit to the zoo. The elephant topiary is fantastic.

Great shots. I love the San Diego Zoo. Thankfully they have lots of ways to move people that cuts down on the walking quite a bit.

great shots, the elephant topiary must take a lot of looking after to keep its shape.
