Sun bathing

Going to the zoo is not something I do regularly, so I was quite impressed by how substantial the child-specific portions of the zoo are.  There is a lot of educational information and helpful guides through out the zoo but there are also several “kid zones” at Zoo Atlanta.  These turtles are in the children’s petting zoo section.

While the animals in the children’s section are not all that wild and ferocious, you can get up close and enjoy seeing them quite easily.  Most of the walking areas in the zoo are shaded which is great for the guests but these turtles wanted to soak up the sun.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
