When I was at the zoo this month I went on the Skyfari. A ski-lift-like ride that takes you up over the entire zoo and to the top of pachyderm hill. Of course I had my camera, and I took a whole bunch of areal shots.
This is the beginning of the Skyfari, I took this picture before I went on the ride.
The Skyfari begins at the giraffes.
I loved seeing the Garden of the senses from above. I think it looks even cooler from the air. Though, most things do. :)
This is where my trip up ended. I went to see the rhinos and the sea lions before I rode back down.
On the way back down I switched over to my zoom lens so I could get close up shots of the animals.
Unfortunately my camera battery died, and I was not willing to risk my camera trying to change the battery in mid air, so I switched to using my point and shoot instead.
The cheetahs were not out on my trip up, so it was nice to get a glimpse of them on my way back down.
Back down to the ground. I plan to ride this in the future too. Hopefully my battery cooperates the next time. :)
