We found a few very colorful trees in a neighborhood which we thought we new pretty well: pomegranate and persimmon :) Persimmon tree is in someone's yard do I got a chance to draw it - but no fruits were close enough to draw them individually (or eat them ;) And this little pomegranate was on the ground - though it's so tiny that we use it as a new year decoration :)
Reindeer, fake ice-skating, polar bears everywhere plus train with lights!
I had a great time - especially being quiet by koala and trying to draw cassowary while it's trying to find a best angle to look at me :)
I saw how giant anteater was licking what looked like strawberry yogurt with a lot of enthusiasm :)
Hornbills were entertaining us with sounds and action!
Flamingos were asleep - all of them!
The most active member of the zoo this time was Hippo - playing in the water all the time - I got almost splashed, saw his grin about 10 times in 12 minutes and he ran a several times from the water and back just for the fun of it!
While I spent time sitting on the grass drawing this page a whole bunch of kids decided to position themselves on a tree nearby in a hope that I might draw them - with the tree. I was not able to fir them all on the tree - and show how fast they were moving - but here are some of my young friends - posing :)
