My friend Katy took me to the Boise Zoo last weekend. Being a week before Halloween, the zoo sponsored a day for kids to come trick-or-treating inside the park's gates.
So I had just as much fun snapping photos of kids in costume as I did taking photos of the animals.
The peacock to the right is probably one of the most flamboyant examples of a costume at the zoo, and the kid's dad looks to be having a good time, too. He was one of the few who smiled for a photo.
Below is the most classic 'zoo' picture I could think of, other than a lion (my lion pictures didn't turn out so well). It turned out to be a challenge to get the camera not to focus on the cage, fence or glass between myself and the wildlife.
