WEDNESDAY but not quite WORDLESS


Smithsonian National Zoological Park
Washington, DC

How to spend a perfect spring or summer day?  At the zoo!  But that was "once upon a time", 
though the time will come again when we can enjoy our own zoo . . . 
here we flashback with some favorite photos during visits there.

From various news stories and photos of zoos all 'round the nation and the world,
many zoo animals seem to be really enjoying the peace-and-quiet
and lack of "we rambunctious visitors"during this time. 

Could they be telling us how we should alter our behavior in the future when we visit them.

  2. Absolutely stunning photos and that first one just melted my heart. I hope Doug is doing better. I bet the zoo animals are enjoying us not being there I have been fretting over whether they're making enough money to feed all the animals without people going there

  3. We have heard that some of the animals are missing all the hustle and bustle. I guess it is a personality thing. Hopefully one day things will return to normal.

  7. I love Zoos and watch lots of them on Animal planet. Our NC Zoo just announced the birth of 6 native wolf pups. They have long been on the endangered list. We hope to visit there this fall...had planned spring but as you said someday.....

  16. Our zoo is open, but only for limited hours and numbers of people. It's always such fun.

    The tortoise is a favorite, it is just my speed!
