Big Tiger and Little Flamingos

Here's a shot of Connor the Malayan Tiger from Sunday at the San Diego Zoo. We spent a lot of time waiting for him, and he was only in this particularly nice light for a minute or two, and then he was gone again. It was worth the wait.


On my way out of the Zoo on Sunday afternoon I stopped by to check out the new baby Flamingos. There are 3 of them, and they are only a day or two old. This first little one was hanging out with his (or her - who knows) mother, and after a bit she just sat down right on top of him.


Once I lost sight of the little one in the picture above I shifted my attention to another, who was now being fed by mom.


Meanwhile number 3 was learning how to swim. There is a series of shots of this little one climbing over the bank (with a bit of help) and tumbling down into the water face first at the link at the end of this post. He didn't stay in the water very long.



Remember the little guy from the first picture? After a bit I noticed something odd with the mother, who appeared to be sleeping on her nest. At first he was a bit hard to spot.


Eventually he poked his whole head out.


Meanwhile, one of the bigger adults was keeping a close eye on me, or so it seemed.
