My Kitty - the Snow Leopard
(she's about 3 feet from my face and I have about 15 photos of her. This was the highlight of my day. Most of our trips to the zoo have not included her beautiful presence and I am just so thrilled to have had the pleasure of taking her picture)
(it was a great day for water fowl although they are beginning to nest and so we met some hissing geese along they way)

It was very busy at the zoo today(I forgot about Spring Break until we got there) but no big deal. The little one actually enjoyed all the little people and joined in the revelry at every opportunity!
The one thing that really got me on my soap box, and I just have to get this out of my system, there were some children running around chasing geese(and boy, I was rooting for the goose hoping it would turn around on the little $#!+ and show them why it isn't a good idea), pulling magnolia flowers off the trees and daffodils off the plants.
WHAT THE HELL!
The parents were right there, what is wrong with you people? You should be teaching your children respect, plain and simple, across the board. Respect for people, animals and all living things. Respect for the people who work so hard to provide a special place to visit wildlife we wouldn't otherwise have the chance to see. Respect for the other guests who might enjoy seeing the flowers dotting the landscape. GRRRRRR, it just got me a bit testy that's all.
But it was a fine day and I got to bond with my kitty!
