This past weekend J and I travelled up to Dudley, where he's from, to spend time with his family for his dads' birthday. Of course, this meant the chance to spend time with J's nephew who is just starting to get to the age where he's interested in absolutely everything; and animals are no exception! We chose to go to Dudley Zoo, which I've been to once before and is one of my favourite zoos in the UK. There are so many animals and conservation bits and pieces going on, and it's really interesting to know the history of the castle. I hope we can go back again next time we're up there!
My favourite part of the day was getting the chance to pet one of the bunnies in the petting zoo area; which unfortunately I didn't manage to get a shot of! I also got some great photos of J with his nephew, which are always nice to have. All the animals were fascinated by him, but especially the Orangutans loved him. Unfortunately this time around the Red Pandas were not feeling sociable and I didn't get a chance to snap them, which is a shame as they're my all time favourite animal. There's always next time though, and I'm very happy with the photos I did get using my trusty telephoto lens.
