spots, stripes and patches at the zoo

Change of scenery today - we visited Monarto Zoo. It was fine, mostly sunny, not windy and green underfoot from the recent rains. Here are a few of the animals. Loved the striped tails on the yellow tailed rock wallabies -The cheetahs were lazing in the sun so difficult to capture their spots, but the zebra family with their new offspring were very obliging,
and this inquisitive lady came up to the viewing platform and looked me in the eye.

Walking back from the giraffe viewing area saw quite a few emus and big kangaroos, but no echidnas although they know they have over 100. Some red gums in bloom and many about to burst into blossom.
