It was a beautiful sunny summer day in the River City and I wanted to get out and take some outdoor photo’s. I met my best friend and fellow photographer Rod McClanahan for lunch and then we  headed over to the Peoria Zoo to capture some images of the animals. It was my first visit to the expanded Africa exhibits and let me tell you it is awesome. The new construction is 1st class and it rivals anything you could find in either Chicago or St. Louis. If you haven’t been there you are missing a real gem in the city, and it is a great way to spend an afternoon with your friends and family.

It was a beautiful sunny day in P-town and I wanted to get out and take some outdoor photo’s,  so I loaded up my camera equipment and headed over to the Peoria Zoo. It was my first visit to the expanded Africa exhibits and let me tell you it is awesome. The new construction is 1st class and it rivals anything you could find in either Chicago or St. Louis.
