A Trip To The Local Sanctuary..

Post by minniev »

..for homeless exotic animals. These animals live out in the country about 5 miles from my house. Most have come from situations where they were displayed in small zoos that went out of business or some other place they could not stay any more. None are from the wild so they're pretty used to people and easy to photograph from your car. They usually have an open top bus for tours, and it's been popular for school field trips. It's been closed since the pandemic but they recently opened it up for self driving tours so I had to go check it out.

Pictures will be a mix of straight photography and some artistic effects.

Thanks, is just an SOOC image that I happened to get decent bokeh in. And I wasn't sure how to make him any better. He was enough like he was. Some of the others will be heavily edited.
