B+W Wednesday

Glorious spring weather this weekend had us visiting our zoo.
I am so thankful to have such an incredible beautiful place near us.

Here are this week's pictures:
(As always, click on pictures to make larger)

It was as if an explosion of life had just occurred.
(You can see the color version here.)



These were some sort of thorny plant on the edge of a wetlands area.

A vivid green plant along the side of the path (in color here).


One of the many walkways over the wetlands area.


This snake was the most brilliant green I have ever seen.









At the Giraffe Overlook where you can feed them...
and yes, that's his tongue!




The giant statue in the Elephant area.
(I love Isabel's shadow in this one.)




The bricks at our feet while we sat on a bench eating shaved ice.
(Also the last picture before my battery died. Boo!!!!)
