When I normally volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, I do not carry my camera with me. If I want to take a picture, I can use my phone. I was right beside the zoo while wandering in the English Garden though and decided to use my membership to go into the zoo as a visitor with my camera.
Using a decent camera, I can zoom past the bars and get better pictures of the critters in there than I can with my phone.
Of course, I took too many pictures to post them individually, so you can click on one to scroll through them at a larger and easier to see size.
Squirrel Monkeys are really cute, but the little guy I got pictures of sure seems to be giving me the evil eye.
