Day at the Atlanta Zoo
As part of a benefit to raise money for Zoo Atlanta and the Panda's I and several other artists spent the day drawing and painting plein air. I thought I might share some of the many incredible sights I and others saw that day. If you get a chance go check out the animals!
Special thanks go to the Cobb Marietta Museum for helping organize this event.
Are you beginning to see a pattern develop here!
This guy was incredible and sort of made my day at the zoo. What a beautiful animal. He is an Asian Lepoard and very rare and endangered. Amazing to watch!
Wow, what can you say after that!
Here Kitty Kitty Kitty. . .
OK, the Bengal Tiger rocks! He was very playful and needed to cool his heels after a good 15 minute bought of being active and checking out the crowds of people watching him.
Here are some of the more usual but no less stellar stars of the show! Enjoy!
South American Monkey
Black Rhino, very endangered and really cute in a rugged sort of way!
African Elephant, She is a real sweet heart and very photogenic!
Zebra, common on the African Plains but wonderful to watch.
Hope you enjoy the photos and it inspires you to take a trip to the Zoo!
