Blog for Photographers - August 2016

 

Local Florida - Brevard Zoo

Brevard Zoo is a great local place to photograph animals.  I regularly visit the zoo several times a year.  The zoo is open daily from 9:30-5, but if you become a zoo member you can get early admission at 9am. 

I love photographing meerkats because they remind me of my kitty cats playing.
