2014—Anderson Zoological Gardens

When I flew to Prescott to visit Melinda and Lonnie, I discovered that their garden is, for me, a zoological paradise. The javelinas have not made their presence known here and thank God I haven’t encountered any tarantulas but I have enjoyed seeing and photographing lots of birds and reptiles and insects right here in the Anderson Zoological Gardens.

Here are a few of the creatures I photographed Sunday morning. I took them all with my D7100 and the 80-400mm lens
