I spent the morning with the Southwest Missouri Camera Club in the Dickerson Park Zoo. The director, Mike Crocker, let us in a little early for a few pictures behind the scenes. Many thanks to Mike for letting us in for the photos.
This giant turtle is always easy to photograph since they don't move around very fast.
This alligator was pretty still - and we hoped he stayed that way!
I had quite a bit of fun playing around with this photo of a mother and child elephant. Click on the image for a larger view.
