Default Edinburgh city and zoo

I've uploaded some of the photos that I took when I went to Edinburgh this weekend. As usual most of the photos are of animals, so I've made divided them into two sets on Flickr:

Edinburgh city

and

Edinburgh Zoo


Here's a preview of a few pics....











And for some reason they get an early start on the christmas preparations:

Oh Nef, you're so good at photographing animals!

You should have asked Anders to assume the same pose as the chimp!
And ... Lindsey?
And what's with the bird on the floor? Did he have an itch?

As for the Edinburgh pics. It's nice to see photographed by somebody else things I've only recently took pictures of myself

Why Nef, are you implying some sort of resemblance between myself and that chimp?

I loved all the photos Ane, it just goes to prove with your photos of Edinburgh, that the sun does come out on occasion there...LOL
I was amazed by the Giraffe sculpture's, they were so incredibly beautiful.
It was also lovely to get to see once again all your wonderful animal photos ...I agree with Hans, you do a fantastic job taking photos of animals. You should find a way to do it professionally. Thank you so much for sharing...once aain I have gotten to do a bit of traveling through your photos.

Nice pics

I was in Edinburgh several years ago and I thought the zoo was particularly lovely.
