San Antonio, Texas – Boar-ed at the Zoo (HDR)

Earlier this summer we hit the San Antonio Zoo.  I’ll admit that it is a challenge to take shots of zoo animals.  You hope for them to be in the right spot and angle. But sometimes you catch them in a mid afternoon snooze!  This dude was out like a light! I am sure his life is super exciting…so I understand his deep sleep.  LOL   Cute little fellow!  I see he has his mud cream on.   I still have some zoo targets to get…a Lion, Tiger, Zebra.  I am certain I can have fun with those shots in Photoshop!   Waco Zoo is my trip…sometime in the fall when it cools down in Texas.  Hope you are having a great summer!
