I’m pretty sure that this safari at Zoo Tampa is the only sort of safari I will ever experience. I’ve been there before of course, but this was the first time the animals in the Africa section ever caught my eye so much. Usually the giraffes are more interested in the people feeding them, and I usually take a picture or two of elephants standing around and then I move on. But not yesterday. A friend got tickets to a limited admission event for seniors held at the zoo yesterday. The social distancing mandates weren’t a problem with the 500 ticket limit in place, and despite the heat even the animals seemed to cooperate and we had a great day.
And the elephants were also doing their part. Who wouldn’t enjoy seeing a baby elephant, even if you have to take a lot of elephant butt shots to get a photo?
We especially enjoyed it when they moved on to their watering hole. Seeing the baby elephant frolicking in the water was so fun, even if the adults were making photos a challenge at times. But perseverance pays off now and then.
Trust me, we weren’t wishing to join them in the water even with the heat. Nope, it was a bit aromatic as we watched…
