The Zoo

We went to the Living Desert Zoo over in Palm Desert.   It was wonderful.  Here are just a few of the marvelous animals we saw....
 This is Black Crowned Night Heron.....looks blue to me
 This is the Common Egret....nothing common about this beauty in my opinion
I want to paint them all!!  In fact we enjoyed the zoo so much that we purchased a membership.  The cost was $70 for both of us and allows unlimited visits for the year.  It also includes many other zoos around the United us entry at no cost or at a reduced cost.  We are going to be here in Desert Hot Springs for another 3 weeks and I plan on spending several more days at the zoo. 


  1. a day filled with animals..great shots !!

  2. Really neat pictures..Glad you enjoyed!

  3. Beautiful, just beautiful. Looking forward to more.

  4. I'm looking forward to your paintings!

    Great idea buying the membership. That's what we did at the Desert Museum in Tucson when we were there for the winter in 2006.

  5. It is a great place and hope you get to visit several times while you are in the area. Looking forward to seeing more pics...and paintings of course :)

  6. I'm also looking forward to your painting...especially the giraffe. They are one of my favorite animals.

  7. Just saw your pumpkin bread on Rick's post and wanted to tell you how good it looked. That's one of my favorite batter breads.
