Close encounters

Yesterday we had another lovely day at the Zoo. David is getting more and more interested in the animals with each visit.As always he loves the many birds - seagulls, sparrows, pigeons and peacocks that roam and fly free.
This time he got up close to the glass to watch the seals swimming...
...and the tiger came up close to watch us! It was amazing! He was pacing back and forth at the glass and several times stopped to look David in the eye!
David enjoyed the stingrays...
...and had another close encounter with the gibbon! We had a long chat with this fellow. The black gibbon was in the background shrieking the whole time!
Thanks again to Grandma for such a great birthday gift - the year pass to Melbourne Zoo.
