As a follow up to my Liam and Melanie post, I thought I’d share a few photos of the animals and scenery at the petting zoo. I love being around animals. I love the uniqueness of each type of creature. Animals do not see differences between people, like we do. We judge each other based on our own ideas of beauty and morality. They see us as just another human. I think in this, we could learn a lesson from the four-legged.
I wouldn’t me be if I didn’t throw in a few pictures of trees, flowers and the sky. The last few pictures are just outside of the petting zoo in the botanical gardens area of the park.

Ah the animals made me squeal. Love the first one. Yes my sleep derived mind even moved my head to the side (thinking I iwas IN the picture) to see what they were looking at lol. I love the pink flower. As always , great pictures. And great timing. It’s about 125am when i saw this post and was writing a depressing blog entry but took a break and saw this post… looking at these pictures picked my spirit right back up. Great ability you have to invoke emotions with your pictures!
Thank you. Sorry to hear you are a bit depressed but I am glad that my photos help you cheer up. 🙂 If it makes your feel any better (misery loves company) my night started off with me feeling a bit down too but your comment made me feel better.
Great captures- the animals pics are very good. Clean and sharp. Looks like a lovely place for an outing for parents and children.
Yes. The animals were very gentle with Liam (As they’d probably have to be to be in a petting zoo). The llamas would very softly take the food out of his hand. I went in the pen with the goats and they were fun to be around. I kept waiting for them to try and eat my jeans or something.
Aww the llamas are adorable!! Thanks for liking my post!
Welcome! Thanks for stopping by.
Love the hair don’ts on the llamas!
Your photography is amazing… I love your blog!
Thank you! 🙂
Enjoying your photos. My partner and I traveled cross-country this summer and back and went through Ohio by Lake Erie. Your photos remind me of our trip – and how the natural world awakens our innocent hearts. Love all the fall colors! Keep shooting! All the best…..
Thanks Kai. I like “awakens our innocent hearts.”
Gorgeous photos! I favor the first one, with the three different colors they look like ice cream flavors 🙂
True 😉 Thanks.
Llamas’ hair looks better than mine.
Ha. I just wish I still had a full head of hair. 😀
Hej from Sweden !
Thanks so much for liking my recent post “Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap”
I have seen your animal photos. Love the goats, but where are their horns. They don’t look right. they look happy, just the same. Welcome back to see all my goats and other animals here at Gullringstorp. Don’t forget to visit my website: http://www.lilsisgoatmilksoap.com
Thanks. I don’t know. I hadn’t thought about where their horns are. Do female goats have horns?
Hej from Sweden !
Actually all goats have horns naturally. Here in Sweden it’s against the lay to “disbud” any animals, sheep, goats or cows. Some people in the US take away horns for showing goats or for safety reasons if they have small children around.Personally I think of the horns as an extension to the goat, like our hair or limbs. They look different on every goat. All my goats have horns and we have not had any problems with them. I just think they are beautiful.
Wow, thanks for the info. I love your blog by the way.
I must say that I’m not really a fan of (four legged) animal photos, but these are quite good. 🙂 I like the close up of that flower. And the tree/sky photos. 😛 ^__^
Thanks. I am glad you like them. 😊
😊 Thanks 😊
Thank you for liking my post. Your photos are amazing! 🙂
Thanks desert fox.
I can imagine the animals posing for you. They’re so relaxed. In one of the pictures I expected an animal to stick out his tongue.
He did. 😃One of the goats.
I love the “three amigos pictures” since they remind me home , thanks for posting
You are welcome. I hear Peru is very beautiful. I would like to visit there one day.
What a wonderful day.
Thanks Sweet as a Picture.
I especially like the last picture .
Thank you, glad you like it.
The llamas are adorable! Your pictures are great, you have a lovely blog.
Love the sky photo! And the llamas, of course. And many others from your gallery- so glad that I checked it out! Definitely want to see much more : )
Please do. Thanks Simba.
Charming photos. So bright and delightful. That blue sky! And the lovely animals, of course.
Thank you petchary.
Goats eyes are so creepy. But I love llamas.
Yes that are strange but they were a love able lot.
The photos look lovely – I’m jealous of what looks like it was a beautiful day 🙂
thanks for the like! Loved the beautiful photography 🙂
Rio told me to tell you that those are some funny looking dogs.
“Animals do not see differences between people, like we do. We judge each other based on our own ideas of beauty and morality. They see us as just another human. I think in this, we could learn a lesson from the four-legged.” Truer words were never spoken. If I had the money to take care of that many animals properly I would totally start my own farm.
Alex, my friend at work wants to start a pigmy farm. Maybe we could all work something out! 😉
Time share pigmy farm? Sounds like a dream. =)
