This somewhat surreal picture was taken at the entrance to the Calgary Zoo.
It wasn't an easy shot to get...the elephant wouldn't stand still! That's because this the elephant was etched on sliding glass doors at the underpass entrance and folk were coming through every few seconds and it took me about six shots beforeI got this one.
It's a while since I've visited the zoo and I was pleasantly surprised at the changes that have been made. They have some really cool artwork that I'll feature in another post and have done their best to upgrade the animal exhibits to make them happier, more stimulating environments. There were lots of babies at the zoo: five baby peccaries, a baby gorilla, a baby colobus, a baby giraffe and a baby lemur that I saw so they must be doing something right.
But I'm still not sure about zoos.
