Flamingo Plaza - Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA (Part 1)

I know that I am posting these photos a little bit late, but here they are anyways. So last year (12/7/2012), my biology professor took the whole class on a field trip (as one of our labs) to the Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA to teach us biology. While I was there, I took many photos of the animals and I am here to show you them. I have to say, I am not a big fan of zoos, but it sure is a great place for animal photos! If you love animal photos like me, definitely give your local zoo a visit. All of these photos were shot using my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens on my Canon EOS 7D.

So for today, I just have photos of flamingos. To be more specific they are photos of the African Spoonbill (Platalea alba) and the Lesser Flamingo (Phoenicopterus minor). You will see these animals the first thing when you walk into the zoo as the exhibit is right behind the front entrance.
