Zoo Creatures

Previous images from the Cincinnati Zoo that I brought you came with ample description of the animals present. For the set of photos today, I was so caught up in capturing the moment that I neglected to record much about their identities.

This bird displays a wild array of feathers, but I like the color similarities between its red eye and burgundy feathers even more.

This member of canidae looks to be less than fully grown, but already fully charming.

Last but not least, I thought this literal picture of a cat picture (an ocelot, I believe) captures the zoo experience quite well.

Buckeye Dusk

Despite the water in the man-made Buckeye Lake being at the lower winter level over concerns about the structural integrity of its earthen dam, and the ensuing economic problems this causes for local businesses, or maybe because of this, the lake is serene around dusk. Not currently being deep enough for boats, the only disturbances are the odd catfish or blue heron. Very peaceful.
