Saturday I stepped into a world where the animals ruled. Not just any animals very wild animals. Fighting crowds of people on a very sunny day in Portland, Oregon. I was at the Zoo. Not having been there since a was probably about 10 yrs old and not really remembering much of it, made it quite the endeavor. I was with my mother and my 11 year old cousin as we wondered through different areas seeing all sorts of wild creatures. Of course my photographic nature was to try and capture these animals that I would probably never see in the actual wild. Here are some glimpses into what I saw that day.
