Blue Monday - Blue At the Zoo!

This is the first time I’ve participated in Blue Monday. Sally at SmilingSally came up with Blue Monday! Thanks Sally!

I was going through a few photos I took earlier this year and came upon a zoo trip that we took in April on my birthday. We were going to go to the zoo on our son's 5th birthday, which is also in April, but it was gloomy and rainy. We changed plans at the last minute since a good portion of this zoo is outside. He didn't know the wiser; it was going to be a surprise so he wasn't disappointed. I admit I was a little because we had not been there for quite awhile. I like to go out and do something out of the ordinary on my birthday, so it seemed like the perfect thing to do. It turned out really nice and was a sunny day. April is a pretty good time to go to the zoo around here because it is usually still cool (which I love) and there are not as many people at the zoo. I like going when it is less busy, it is easier to see the animals when you don’t feel like you are being rushed. It is less sticky and hot too which helps keep the stink factor down. There was quite a bit of blue at the zoo. Blue is one of my favorite colors! ;)

Here is a really beautiful, blue, poisonous frog...



Frogs are a favorite too...I have lots of favorites! ;)



A blue fish...



A very beautiful peacock...







Happy Blue Monday!



Have a great week!

ohhhhh and ahhhhh your blue pictures are lovely. The frog and the fish blues are so vividly beautiful.
The zoo is a wonderful place to take children...children of allll ages. There is just so much to see and learn. I'm sure there was lots for your little 5 year old to see even indoors. Madeline who is 4 has been going for YEARS *g*..too and always finds something new to talk about.
Thank you for sharing.

A blue frog - how unique!!! Your blues are great - especially the fish and the peacock. I like to visit the Washington zoo before the busy, hot season too. It looks like you really had a great time. Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Heidi.

Wow, that frog is so unusual. Since it is poisonous I believe I would be staying clear.

My husband's grandmother had peacock. And, they were beautiful, but very loud.

Amazing pics for Blue Monday. I love the peacock. I have Ibis in my garden which are large birds with blueish sheen to their grey feathers and I call them my peacocks!
