Visit to Howletts in July

Post  Doogs on Mon Sep 20, 2010 1:44 pm

I've just realised that after downloading the photos I took at my recent stable visit I've got the ones that I took from Howletts on my computer at work so here's a few (I'll put them on a few different threads).

Gorillas (not great photos as the bars to the cages were very thick and green so it was impossible to get any great shots with all the bars in the photos. There was a 'see through' bit but it was not non-reflective so the quality of these are also poor, but you'll get the jist !)







Now this little tooter was just incredibly cute, we must have watched mainly him/her for about 2 hours. Mum was always with or beside him/her and kept a very watchful eye out when he/she was playing with the other gorillas in the group. You can actually see the scrathes on the 'see through' bit in these photos, they could have been quite good if they had non reflective glass at this bit Crying or Very sad You get the jist though as to just how adorable he/she was !!! I love you

Fantastic photos Doogs - never mind the glass they are lovely to see.

I love the tiger, what a gorgeous face, but the lemurs chilling really made me smile.

Thanks for posting, and i'm glad you found them on your camera

Thanks Lai - just changed one of the Tiger photos as two of them were very similar.
The Lemurs were apparently in a grumpy mood that day but they looked pretty chilled to us lol!

Just looked again at the tiger - it really is so magnificent and if the lemurs were grumpy you wouldnt know, they look great to me, at least they didnt have their backs to you!

Loving the photos Doogs and that little baby gorilla! Sooooo Cute!
Easy to forget the Tiger is a dangerous predator, so cuddley. The Lemurs definitely look very laid back, they dont look grumpy at all.

Looks like you had a fabulous time.

OH Hooley Dooley Doogs, those are brilliant. I adore the gorilla ones, the baby is so cute but i love the photo of the hand, it says so much but tenderness springs to my mind. The Tiger is stunning and SM is right you almost forget how powerful they are, you just want to cuddle him dont you.
I so want to go to Howletts it looks amazing. Thanks so much for posting those and i'm really glad you found them too.
