Re: KC Zoo 2020

I have always loved the Africa section. Spread out with lots to explore. Feels a little less like a Zoo or more like nature than Omaha or especially STL. I meant to comment earlier on your post. Yes, indeed. I was taken aback by all the gorgeous scenery at this zoo. For me, the animals were not the...

Re: KC Zoo 2020

These are the last pictures from that day at the zoo, on 11/6/20. Who’da thought the KC Zoo could have such a beautiful lake? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51066444053_68f44cf0a0_c_d.jpg Even artists plied their trade at the zoo. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51066443583_30546c5bc6_c_d.j...

Re: KC Zoo 2020

You can go to this zoo and see beautiful scenery, even if you don’t see one animal. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51041634151_6ce7c0dc30_c_d.jpg The berries have it. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51040903128_408fa68783_c_d.jpg Not the Ozarks.

Re: KC Zoo 2020

Have you taken a drive past the new Terminal at KCI? I was wondering what you think of progress so far and of the new terminal in general vs the existing one and downtown airport. Gosh, no. I pretty much stay in the house. I haven't even gone to the grocery store since last March. My son does that....

Re: KC Zoo 2020

I didn't even know about those plans, NormalThings. I just checked and observed that construction begins in 2021. The grand opening will be in 2023. I may not even be alive then! But if I am, I will make a point to visit the aquarium and take pictures, just for you. <smiley face>

Re: KC Zoo 2020

The video was taken next to a man-made lake behind my house in Kansas City, north of the river. I believe the lake is fed by streams. Perhaps Shoal Creek is involved. That same day, a bald eagle showed up, and we got a video of him, too. But it is rather long and requires editing.

Re: KC Zoo 2020

About that river otter. I did take a few pictures, via my cell phone through my son's telescope, but they weren't very good. Then he took a video with his cell phone, using the same setup, with greater success. It's still nothing ready for Hollywood, but it's better than nothing. The video was taken...

Re: KC Zoo 2020

Thank you, Major. I certainly displayed my ignorance with the otter/seal thing. I appreciate your kind and gentle correction. All I do on these trips is take pictures. Occasionally I'll catch a sign. I should have paid better attention to one of those signs that must have been there. Now that you me...

Re: KCK, West Bottoms, & Quality Hill

Photos look great bones! Roanker, do you have any old downtown KC photos? I know you've shared one or two before. Gosh. I don't know. I'll have to go digging. I didn't get into photography until 2005, and you can't really call what I do now as true "photography." I know very little about how a came...

You spent some serious time with these excellent photos. Even getting them uploaded kept you away from whatever else you may have wanted to do. Thanks much.
