Spring is always a great month to go to the zoo. The air is still crisp, which makes some of the animals a bit more active than normal (so they can keep warm). Sometimes you luck out and get a wonderfully sunny day, making the trek about the grounds enjoyable. In March of 2006 I decided to shoot with some slower slide film. This was one of my first shots. This big guy’s face has so much character.
