When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught,
the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.

The Potawatomi Zoo (external link)!!!

I'm sick of going here tbh. But I have a 3 y/o so I'll be going there for some time to come. I take the camera every time so I'm not bored to tears. It's SO small! And most of the animals are impossible to shoot since they are in cages with such close together bars. It drives me nuts! Unless your right next to the bars of the cage a clear shot is impossible. And with the railings, you can't get that close. Others are behind filthy, dirty, thick glass. Those you might get a clean shot of once in a while. If you can block the glare. But still, I take the camera, hoping that maybe I can get a clear shot somehow, someday. Then there is the zoo train. The engine looks kinda cool, so why not?

I guess my cage/glass problem is an issue at all zoos really. Brookfield is HUGE, but same thing. Indy, same thing. I think it's more to keep people out of the enclosures than to keep the animals in. Case in point, why the does lion cage have only a few inches between the bars? You could have a foot between the bars, yet the lion would still have no chance to get out. But a small child could easily get in. Shear stupidity has ruined photo opps for me and other photographers that like to take their cameras with them to the zoo!

Sorry to "derail" the thread. As you were!
