As part of the process of reacquainting myself to Saint Louis, I went to the zoo today. I did this after first bicycling around Forest Park, which contains the zoo. I’m trying to maximize my outdoor time, because after today the forecast is for over a week of rain. Anyway, back to the zoo. I arrived just after noon. The zoo was crowded. Most of the kids there are due back to school this week. Anne is prepping for her class as I write. It was already hot when I arrived and some of the aforementioned children were already beginning to meltdown in the heat. It being late summer now, I was able to recapture one of my favorite photos. In late summer the water in the flamingo’s pond turns a perfectly contrasting shade of green, making for a striking image.
