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!
