At the Zoo

Today Dean and I headed off to the zoo to meet up with my brother and his family.  Once again, it was a hot and sticky day.  We got an early start, and it's a good thing that we did, because the animals were all snoozing in the shade by lunchtime.  We did get to see the bearcat walking around, a first, since it's usually sleeping in a tree.  It was really cute!  I took a ton of pictures, so I'll spread the visit over a few posts.

Even though it was just as humid as outside, I love the flowers and the pretty butterflies

The birds and butterflies share the same building. This is inside the aviary, where there are streams and a little waterfall

There is a bench shaped like a butterfly right outside the entrance.  It's not very comfy, but it sure looks nice.

And that's it for this post.  Join me tomorrow as I give you a glimpse of some of the not so yummy food available at the zoo, as well as more animals!
