San Francisco Zoo - a visit on March 16, 2013

Hadn't visited the San Francisco Zoo for at least 20 years.

Used the very small Canon SX260 because of its flexible zoom lens at 20x.

To see the images that are 1024 pixels wide (or larger) for the thumbnails below, *click* on 'ORIGINAL' option below the first photo that comes up after you click on a thumbnail; otherwise, and that setting will stay for the session.  It defaults to 800 pixels wide.


Click on any thumbnail to get a larger version.  Then click on "Next" or "Previous" to see other ones.
  (A left- or right-arrow keypress also works if your screen is large enough.)



*** ( For FULL SCREEN: PC's, press/toggle F11.  Mac's, maximize screen. ) ***
