At the Zoo

This weekend, I did something I have wanted to do for some time: visited the local zoo. I had great fun, pretending to be a serious photographer and clicking away (with not a lot of success, sadly). It was like being a kid again, though I tried hard to distance myself from the hordes of uniformed children. I am putting up my favourite photos from the visit.

The board says: Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park
and Wildlife Research Centre, Katraj

Painting near the entrance

The sun filtering in through the leaves

Fading flowers

A group of deer resting in the shade

A buck striding towards his harem

A deer poised by the pool

The Guy walking with his mother

The leopard stalks

What are these tortoises doing?

This one is by the Guy - a turtle in water

Alligators raise their heads

Slithering snakes

The quiet lake

The ground strewn with flowers

Oh, I've been wanting to go there since so long. It's a missile's throw from home, and we pass those gates at least 3-4 times a month, but that's usually on weekends and I hate the crowds. I guess I'll have to come back all the way on a long drive to visit it once I move to the new house near Chandni Chowk!
