Handmade book using my Peacock photos taken at the San Diego Zoo & prints of a few of my peacock paintings. Pages decorated with snippets of Gelli flower prints. Cover is lovely India paper. Peacocks carrying their tails like bridal trains, wearing fascinator feather hats – what female peahen wouldn’t swoon?

SAN DIEGO ZOO – Tigers, Flamingos, Pandas & Peacocks Oh My!

Tigers, Peacocks, Flamingos & Pandas – Oh My!  Such beauty at the San Diego Zoo.  It was wonderful spending time with some of the volunteers there, too.  I was happily surprised at all the education given to visitors there now.  The educational exhibits are wonderful and some are interactive, too.  Sometimes the animals couldn’t be seen because the foliage in their enclosures gives them the opportunity to stay out of sight.  Really the San Diego Zoo is evolving in the right direction!
