Como Zoo and Marjorie McNeely Conservatory

As our vacation in Minneapolis (and I should have been saying Minneapolis/St. Paul all this time) winds down - we head over to St. Paul again to see the free zoo - Como Zoo and Marjorie McNeely Conservatory ...it was so nice and pretty - we had perfect weather for it...
...the animals seemed to be well cared for and happy...
...and old...
...and playful...
...and very non-chalant...
...this Mama and babe headed indoors...
...for some playtime alone - it was so sweet to watch her playing with her baby...
...this sweet bird showing off her pretty feathers...
...a sleek Tiger...
...a Lion and Lioness...
...but I could have used all of my digital film here - don't you just love the 'catipillar' netting...
...the butterflies were beautiful and they happily landed on us all...

  2. A free Zoo, that sound terrific. We have to pay $24 for an adult to get into our zoo and most of the time the tiger hides and we never see him.
