A Visit to the Sedgwick County ZooTuesday 21 August 2018

This is a flamboyance:

This is public transport:

Alas, we have lost our Marbles.


Marbles (obit)

But others carry on carrying on…


…all the way to the top.

Apes are artistic.

Ape Art 1

In that abstract kind of way.


Madonna and Child

You found your niche, now lie in it.

This way to Down Under

Australia and South America

After all-the-ants-you-care-to-eat time.

napping anteater

There’s usually one napping at the end of a trench at Disney’s Animal Kingdom also.


it's a pink flower

“I’m just resting my eyes…”

it's a zygodactyl

“Wait–did you hear a noise?”

open-eyed member of the Psittacidae family

Heaven, I’m in heaven,
And the cares that hang around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together dancing, beak to beak.

These are the tail feathers you’re looking for.

Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris.

it's a capybara

They need no introduction.

they're ducks

Further flora.

It’s an anapsid.

this one is a turtle

Further flora some more.

this time they're red

“Color me colorful.”

well, it's another parrot

“Not everyone notices me.”

you only noticed because I posted a close-up

Two, four, six, eight — everyone reticulate!

giraffa reticulata

Two, four, six, eight, everybody pollinate!

bee attentive!

“I have the same number of vertebrae in my neck as you do.”

you're looking at our necks, aren't you?

Further flora some more again.

they're pink and red flowers

That’s all. We didn’t see all of the zoo by any means. But although it was cool and nice when we got there, it got hot and sweaty so we left. Through the gift shop, as signs directed us. Sorry, no merchandise photos this time. Perhaps on my next Wichita expedition.
