I'm sure I must've posted some of this elsewhere, but... well, I went to the zoo yesterday, and came back with a few good pictures (and a lot of not so good ones.) The gallery is online at http://xepher.xepher.net/Pictures/index.php?dir=SA%20Zoo and if you go to just http://xepher.xepher.net/Pictures/ you can find all my photos. Some of it's interesting, most of it's dull. But I figured I'd just post it for fun. Sometime soon, I need to dig through all my pictures and create a gallery of my personal favorites. For the Zoo, this was probably my "best" pictures, even though the Hippo is one of the most dull animals, this one at least had the good grace to let me get a good angle on it. All the cool creatures were sleeping or hiding. I was especially annoyed that the Snow Leopards were all away/indoors. Oh well, can't blame 'em. It was near 100f outside. :-)

I think that one's pretty awesome too.  Background can't be helped but the animal normal.  The poisonous frogs are also cool but I also like them anyway.  I used to have little plastic versions of them all over my room. ^_^

Awesome shots there. :D
The pink bird(flamingo in a tree?) is my all-time fave but that last "Whatchu lookin' at?" bear photo had me laughing so hard.

Well, glad ya'll like 'em. :-)

I know most zoos are all the same, but I find it's a lot more fun if you take a camera.

I forgot about this one... http://xepher.xepher.net/Pictures/index.php?display=SA%20Zoo%2Fdsc_0004.jpg

I want to make it into a motivational-poster type funny picture. I figure two ducks sitting in the grizzly enclosure has got to be a punchline for something... I just can't figure out what.

How about...

SITTING DUCKS
They suspect nothing...


Yeah, not the best.
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.

That's actually not half bad... the sitting ducks part works great, just need a wittier punch.

Maybe "Situational Awareness: Without it, you're just a sitting duck." or "Literacy: (ditto)" Or for the D&D theme, "Spot Check: Fail it, and you're a sitting duck."

Ah yes, I think I'll do that last one.

Oh, another one!

Ironically, not sitting.


I like my motivational posters short and sweet. but D&D references are always good, too.

or rather than the same ol' D&D puns you could call it a "Perception Check" and make fun of Warhammer for once.  :P

Heh, yeah, but then no one would get it. :-)

Odd coincidence.. I have a music playlist made up of about 3 years of indie rock playlists (around 3000 songs) set to random. Just as I came to view this, it went to a song I'd never heard before called "Two Sitting Ducks" by Danielson. I love weird things like that.

Too late.  In 4th edition D&D they're combined spot and listen into one perception roll...
