The Indy Zoo

I probably would have spent the day at White River Gardens and the butterfly exhibit, but the zoo had just received two koalas from the San Diego Zoo named Bamba and Coombah.

I had a close encounter with the koalas when I went to Australia in 1993, where I actually got to pet them and have a picture taken with one. I really wanted to see them again. These two are behind glass and they were both asleep, so the pictures aren't that great. They are so cute!

The zoo had their pink flamingo lawn ornaments.

The bald eagle.

The lioness.

Baby ducks.

I couldn't believe how much further along the flowers were at the zoo than at my house. My daisies have a few buds, but not a single one is blooming yet.

There is nothing more pleasurable than seeing little children laughing and having a good time.
We really had a blast at the Indy Zoo and White River Gardens!

Great pictures from the zoo Robin. That little girl is a doll. So are the koalas. My daisies aren't blooming yet. The zoo must have started theirs indoors. Either that or they are in a very protected place.

Only 2 comments, that can't be right. Such lovely pics you took Robin. Love the one with the little girl playing with water, you've captured her happiness in a shingle shot, super! The pics of the baby ducks are so adorable and of course, being me, I love the pic of the big kittycat ...... mi-aow! ;-)

We haven't been to the zoo for quite some time. Your pictures make me want to go!
