A Week in Seattle - Woodland Park Zoo

More from our week in Seattle, June 13 - 19, 2010, this time some images from the Woodland Park Zoo. This is a great zoo, in many ways I think it is right up there with the San Diego Zoo, considered one of the best in the country. With all the last minute stuff we had going on I wasn't sure we would have time for a zoo trip, so I didn't take a long lens. The longest I had was 70mm, hardly first choice for a trip to the zoo. That meant no close up pictures of the animals unless I could get creative or really lucky. I was able to get close to these bears.

These giraffes let me get close as well. I was surprised, as I think they are usually a lot more skittish.

The Northern Trail exhibit has a great brown bear enclosure, and depending on what the bears feel like doing, you can be pretty close to them at times.

The monitor lizard was just on the other side of the glass.

The jaguar was napping.
