The Cincinnati Zoo is ranked as one of the top 10 zoos in North America and has the nickname of “The Sexiest Zoo in America” because of their successful breeding programs! It’s also the 2nd oldest zoo in America!
Having not visited in 15 years, I enjoyed going yesterday. I also wanted to check out the annual “Festival of Lights” event, so I accomplished two missions! When I’m on a mission that means I walk fast! Here’s the Christmas tree upon entry…
The zebras are one of my favorite…
The green on these birds is gorgeous!
There are over 2 million LED lights at the Zoo!
I used my new tripod for the first time and also tried my Olympus PEN on manual setting for the night shots. My settings were 1/25 shutter, 4.5 F-stop, and 1000 ISO. Photography is a true passion for me…I was looking forward to taking photos more than anything else!
The small lake had the prettiest display of lights.
I hope you enjoyed your tour and perhaps this will help get you into the holiday spirit!!
