I went to the zoo yesterday intending to sketch. I did a little. The wallabies were being particularly obliging models (they were asleep), but the shifty ocelot...not so much. I wandered through the kids' section for a short while before deciding to head home. Before I did, though, I decided to see just a few more animals, then just a few more. I stumbled across a part of the zoo I don't think I'd ever seen before. I won't describe it because I want to preserve it in my memory. I don't want to warp it or jinx it. The second to last thing I saw was the komodo dragon exhibit. I'm fairly certain they didn't have those last time I was there. I know; I looked. They're such pretty beasts. Naturally the last thing I saw was the giraffes. I can't go to that zoo without visiting the giraffes at their giant, multi-species enclosure. I love that they have room to run. I arrived at just the right time: feeding time. They're fed extremely close to the fence, so the view was amazing. I could've stood there until they all wandered away.
