Houston Zoo Photo Day

Last weekend my husband and I attended a Photo Day at the Zoo. The idea was to allow photographers the chance to take photos early before the crowds. The trainers came out and fed the animals while we ran around and took pictures. They told us funny stories about the animals and tried to help lure them to where we could take better photos of them.

I shot with my standard lens and my husband used the new zoom lens. It made for a really interesting mix of photos. I was also surprised at the number of local wild animals that have taken up residence at the zoo. Chickens are apparently a common sight walking around and I saw a few rabbits and ducks as well.
