Trip to the San Diego Zoo

The conference concluded mid-day, so I had the rest of the day to explore San Diego. A colleague of mine was interested in seeing the San Diego Zoo, and realizing the photo opportunities, readily agreed to join him.

Such a terrific zoo, and it was a good day to visit it: the sun was out but it never felt too hot. We hopped on the SkyTrain which took us to the other end of the zoo and slowly worked our way back to the entrance.

I had a field day taking shots of just about everything that I could get a good photo of (and a few I couldn’t. 😉 Here are some highlights:
