A Day At The Zoo

 Today Nelson and I headed off to the Zoo. The weather turned out beautiful and we had such a lovely day.
 
 Found a ball of Lemurs!
 A miniature one!
 The new baby Pygmy Hippopotamus was having a sleep.
 This White Cheeked Gibbon took a fancy to Nelson.
 Every time Nelson moved, she moved along with him.
I love this photo.
 You can see how far she moved along.
 Watched the elephants having a shower.
 Got up close with these Rainbow Lorikeets.
 Nelson made another friend!?
Just to prove I was there too!

I think I prefer Nelson's first friend to his second friend.

Fun photos, Christine! That is quite a ball of lemurs! And that gibbon looks adorable. She did seem quite taken with Nelson!

Love the lemurs - so cute. Such great photo's. Think I would rather be loved by a gibbon than a snake!
