A trip up to Safari Park, part of the San Diego Zoo, on this warm Sunday afternoon found some great shots of animals, including some newborns. Above a night heron poses on a rock.
Kongo is a frequent visitor to the Safari Park, located in Escondido about 25 miles north of downtown San Diego. Today was a San Diego Charger playoff day so the locals were home watching San Diego trounce the Cincinnati Bengals and the park was pretty empty. The temperature was 80 but the animals were pretty active. In the summer when temperatures get up toward 100 or so the animals spend most of the time hanging out under shade trees making for difficult photography. Today all you had to worry about was a harsh afternoon sun.
Travel safe. Have fun. Go Chargers!
