We had a wonderful morning at the Tucson Zoo with our ddil, Nikki, this morning. The zoo is beautifully landscaped, and mostly shaded, which was handy with the 90+ temperatures by 9 am.

Here I am, feeding a giraffe some lettuce. They are gentle creatures, with amazing tongues!

It is mating season, and we saw plenty of examples all around the zoo, from the dancing male peacocks to the tortoises! Here are a couple of otters frisking about.

This is an interesting view of an ostrich.

Here I am with my dh, under a beautiful chaste tree. The zoo was covered with gorgeous flowers, and you will seeing more of those photos in coming posts.

And here is our ddil, with her new camera (the giraffe feeding and otter shots are taken by her!)

We are having a great time with Tim and Nik, and look forward to a couple more days to enjoy them and this wild desert environment!
