Zoo lights 2009

Originally uploaded by Mary Anne Thygesen.

I went to the zoo lights this weekend.

Dazzling lights are in the entry plaza. Animated deer leap over the top of the ramp. Bobsledders wind around the down ramp. They are officiated by a whale at the end of the ride.

On the viewing platform on the ramp there is a spectacular vista of the lights all over the zoo grounds.

Lights were all around me everywhere I walked. Smells of elephant ears and elephants. Green and yellow orange Bamboo trees by the elephant yard.

I saw Rose-Tu put her baby Samudra to bed in the elephant barn, covering him up with straw.

The Zoo lawn is a big lake with crocodiles and hippos.

The farm is open with plenty of animals.
