Remember that poll where I gave a list of animals and names and told you to pick one of each?

Here's why! )

Zooooo!

Toby proposed we head to the zoo for a bit, as I'd expressed a wish earlier in the week to go there at some point and take photos. I jumped at the idea, as I was stresse3d out about the Seekrit Projekt and waiting for Mom to finish proofreading it. (You'll know about it when I can mention it in public.)

It was crowded* and warm, which is to be expected, and we spent about 2 hours there before I got headachy, cranky, and stomach-crampy (either dehydration, even though I had a bottle of water and was drinking it, or the not-very-good tacos I ate there for lunch). Went home at that point, but I did get some good photos with my new 70-300mm lens. Woo!

* Although I have been to the zoo during Spring Break on Half-Price Wednesday, so I no longer fear hell.

[livejournal.com profile] puppleball, we've gotta go to the Fort Worth zoo with both the cameras (they have a Komodo dragon!). :D I went to my local zoo (last time it was the Dallas zoo, this time Fort Worth) to try out my other lens - a 70-210mm zoom. It worked out muchly nicely for taking photos of animals, although there were a couple of times I wished that I'd had the other lens, because I needed a wider angle. I can't show you how spiffy the tiger habitat is because my lens wasn't wide enough to show anything. Next time!
