    We spent Monday, (President's Day Holiday here in the States) at the Phoenix Zoo.

    I brought my A6000 and two lenses, the 50mm SEL and 70-150mm Vivitar. The 50mm was mostly used for the people shots, and the 70-150mm for the animals, but it does vary a bit. I went home with 300+ shots, edited it down to about 100, with about 50 really nice ones.

    So on with the show.

    First the crew. My wife and I and three girls.

    Poor things, what a life that must be.

    Of course you have to get snacks along the way.

    Petting Zoo fun. Again what a life, being chased around all day by a bunch of kids.

    That's the idea in my house ;) What can we do to wipe her out by evening?

    It is nice when they ask to go to bed rather than being forced to.

    Wow man, that squirrel in the first shot must have been trapped in the petting zoo for a loooong time....
