NOLA May 2014 v3 At the Zoo

14 Comments

Christy, Jesse, and I went to the Audubon Zoo while we were in New Orleans.  It is a stop we make on almost every trip.  I posted some animal pictures in the the previous blog and I thought I would share pictures of my co-conspirators.

Watching Jesse play


What do you mean we have to go back to the house?  I’m not done!

NOLA May 2014 v2 At the Zoo

Christy, Jesse, and I went to the Audubon Zoo while we were in New Orleans.  We love it and it is a stop we make on almost every trip.

Flamingos are graceful and beautiful.  I enjoy watching them.


I think this is a Sun Bear.  He looked deceptively friendly as he posed for everyone.  Check out those claws. WOW!


I like tortoises.  They look look old and wise.  Several have lived with me for short periods of time.


Quack! Quack!


This looks like a lemur to me.  They were enjoying a little snack.

Waiting on the rain to stop.

Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.

Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.

We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.

For the Birds

A few more pictures from our trip to the Audubon Aquarium.


The macaws are in the tropical rain forest area on the top floor.  The parakeets are in a big aviary on a lower floor.  The parakeets are friendly if you purchase a little food for a bribe.

I enjoy watching the penguins.


We had a great time at the aquarium. Tweet! Tweet!

Jellies and Friends

Here are the first pictures from our trip to the Audubon Aquarium.


Jellyfish are one of my favorite subjects to photograph in aquariums.


I was disappointed with the jellyfish pictures I got on this trip.  I just wasn’t able to get many I liked.


Jesse had a great time playing with and around this pressure suit.


We all had a great time playing at the aquarium.
