this is my favorite spotting that you have posted! Sure, the animals of the zoo are amazing! The photos are nice too. However, I am a firm believer that Project Noah is an organization that is built on the premise that we should each show the actual biodiversity present in our area. You have definitely shown this with this spotting. Thanks.
