I finally got the  chance to visit the local zoo last week. Like most zoos here in China people are encouraged to feed the animals . Of  course I have to buy  the feed myself which means extra income for the zoo. What I enjoyed most is getting close to the animals, because they are used to people giving them  goodies the animals are not afraid to get near you. In the bird sanctuary I found this peacock roaming around freely waiting  for us to give it corns./ seeds…she even allowed me to pet her for a few seconds …thus I got this opportunity to get  this very close up shot! Awesome!
