Zoo March 2017

We have a membership, so we go often, and we wanted to see the newborn Giraffe. There is also a new Tiger exhibit, which is quite nice. <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2652'> Baby Giraffe </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2653'> Baby Giraffe with parents </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2654'> Tiger in New Enclosure </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2655'> Splashing Sea Lion </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2656'> Dozing Polar Bear </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2657'> Playing Polar Bear </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2658'> Hyena </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2659'> Hippo </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2660'> Ringed-tail Lemur </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2661'> Okapi </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2662'> Orchid </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2663'> Orchid </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2664'> Fish </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2665'> Sea Anemone and Clown Fish </dd> <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption' id='gallery-12-2666'> Tortise </dd>

My New Camera

I’ve been thinking about replacing my 11-year old Konica Minolta Digital SLR for a few months now. The old camera still works okay, but it has issues that started to bother me more and more. The battery door opens on its own, which is annoying. If it hasn’t been used for a while (e.g. a few hours), the first photo taken doesn’t work and the camera has to be power cycled.
