Visit to Five Sisters Zoo

A New Year dawned and we felt enlivened.  The long slog from 2015 to the end of 2016 was over and the news at the end of 2016 was optimistic.  I am making a few changes to the format of this blog.  No long-winded text, just 1 or 2 images with comment and a link to the album on Flickr.  I’m not touting for business so I select the picture(s) that pleased me or/and Susan.  I would welcome feedback – provided it is constructive and not abusive.

Two images from our visit to Five Sisters Zoo, Polbeth, West Lothian on the 4th January 2017.  The sun was shining and a bright future beckoned so what better way to celebrate than visit the ex-circus lions at the Zoo.  It is often hit or miss when one goes to the zoo, in all likeliness the animal you wish to photograph fail to show, this time the four lions were out on their hill.  I had decided not to lug round all my camera lenses (mistake) and opted to use my Pentax K-50 with fitted with a Sigma 18-270 mm zoom.
