We brought along our cameras the day my mother, sister, and I visited the zoological gardens.
We took the most photographs in the Flamingo exhibit. The swimming pair swimming looked
like friends or a couple — adorable. The spot was shady with lots of detail. My mother (a prior
Iowa State Fair Photography Salon Blue Ribbon winner) encourages us to try unique
compositions, and I kept her advice in mind here.
