Crouching Tiger, Sleeping Lemur at @BlairDrummondSP

Crouching Tiger, Sleeping Lemur at @BlairDrummondSP

A day off work, a bit of sun. Safari Park anyone? Why not! A few pictures from a recent trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park.

Hi-res versions of all these images are available for free download from Morguefile.

Tiger Walking

Tiger Walking

We didn’t get much of a view of the tigers as we walked about but they came down near the fence as we were driving round. Quite pleased to get this through a thankfully fairly substantial fence.

Otters Standing

Otters Standing

I do like otters. These little guys could sense they were about to get fed and ran about looking for the approaching keeper. All this a few feet in front of me.

Otters Looking

And then they’d run up on the log and look for food again.

Sleeping Red Ruffed Lemur

It wasn’t a very warm day but this lemur had the right idea.

Baby Meerkat Scratching

Baby Meerkat Scratching

This baby meerkat was only 4 weeks old and was entirely adorable and very small. This is a very tight crop, in the full size image it’s almost invisible.

Adoration of the Meerkats

Adoration of the Meerkats

Feeding time at the meerkats at they know what’s about to happen. Almost religious in their look of adoration.

Cheeky Marmoset

Cheeky Marmoset

The marmosets run free so it’s really easy to get good shots of them. Especially when they are concentrating on eating.

Weird Turkey

Weird Turkey

In the pet zoo bit the turkeys wander about looking, well, quite weird. This guy looks like a Dr Who Special Effect.

Fish Eagle

The birds of prey are always good for a photo as they sit on perches not in any cages or behind any fences.

Falconry Display

Falconry Display

The birds of prey show featured a falconry display. This was caught with a press and guess. The bird was travelling very fast.

Saker Falcon

I don’t know what it is about the Saker Falcon but it seems to always look straight at the camera.

Red Llama

Llamas are just funny, right?

Alex the Vulture

This is the film star, Alex the Vulture. He was in Alexander.

Rhinoceros

Of all the things you encounter when driving round, I think I’d least like to anger these guys.

Lion Resting

Lion Resting

The lioness was very warm and looked puffed out in heat. Don’t know if it would enjoy Africa much.

Running Bear

Running Bear

The bears were chasing each other round the enclosure. It’s not named after a Native American chief.

Giraffe

Giraffe

Giraffe’s are just funny, right?

Leaping Sea Lion

Leaping Sea Lion

The Sea Lion show was good fun and rewarded a fast shutter speed and a bit of luck.
