It was in May of 2008 that I had the opportunity to visit the Wild Animal Park and the Zoo in San Diego. At the Park they offered (for a fee) a photographic tour on the back of a truck whose floor was 7 feet off the ground. It was perfect for observing and photographing the residents. I am 6'4" and still the Giffare's had to lean down to say hello. The females are 19' tall and the males reach 23' tall.
I hope you enjoy these images - all 200 of them - but I just couldn't leave anybody out. Just click on an image to make them larger and start the slide show, lean back and relax and enjoy the wonderful creatures we have the pleasure of sharing this planet with.
Fireworks at Lake Blue Ridge
The views were spectacular in Tennessee looking over the Taccoa/Ocoee River!
Time to click for the sky and the leafs, they were incredible in 2018.
