Thinking of the Omaha Zoo

Tonight I am thinking of the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska.

Omaha Zoo, Henry Doorly Zoo, Tiger Bite, Drunk Woman, Stupid PeopleThe reason why I am thinking about it is that I will be in Omaha next weekend for my niece’s wedding.

So, I thought I would just share a few pictures that I took during a visit nine years ago.

Omaha Zoo Tiger, Tiger, Tiger in CageThey have some nice tigers at the zoo. I remember walking through this part of the zoo with my nephew who is a big Tiger fan.

Missouri Tigers that is.

He was fascinated with the tigers.

Giraffes - Giraffa camelopardalis - Henry Doorly Zoo - Omaha Zoo - Nations Best Zoo - Giraffe RiddleI took a few nice pictures of the giraffes at the zoo.

Blue Morpho Butterfly - Morpho peleides - Henry Doorly Zoo - Omaha, NebraskaI also took some nice pictures of butterflies, including this Blue Morpho.

Western Lowland Gorilla - Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo - Hubbard Gorilla Valley - The One and Only Ivan - Newberry AwardMy favorite pictures were of the gorillas. I really like this one that I took through a glass bubble. You can see the distortion in the picture from the curved surface of the glass.
