We could stay all day
We went to Colchester Zoo today - we've been members of their Gold Card scheme on and off for years, and now I am a lady of leisure and we can get there in the week, we decided to renew. There will be more photos, but their young male Amur Tiger (Siberian Tiger, to the more old fashioned among us) decided to take advantage of his pool

Settling in to Cool Off - Amur Tiger

I have far too many photos of him, and cannot decide which ones I like best.

The timber wolves were posing

So did this young Komodo Dragon

And the new British Birds of Prey display was excellent

Barn Owl Lands

Even the fossa put in an appearance though, as usual, it moved too quickly to get a decent photo of the whole beastie with my compact telephoto.


More to follow...

Lovely pictures. I do like that wolf! *g* And the tiger is beautiful.

Isn't he? When they were a little younger, these tigers used to rub up against the glass as if they wanted to play with the visitors. Mind you, the zoo used to breed snow leopards, and we did spend some time playing patticake against the glass with snow leopard cubs. (Where the hell are those photos, I ask myself?)
