A note to my photoblogger readers: there's a spammer going around mass spamming in Arabic for a cleaning company in the Middle East. Check your comments, as the insufferable little bastard briefly got comments posted here yesterday on numerous posts, and I've seen other such comments from him elsewhere. To the insufferable little bastard, I will say this- as you are in the Middle East, you deserve to get dropped into the middle of the Empty Quarter with no provisions or water, you bloody wanker.
Back to the matter at hand. I start off today with the fruit bats. A keeper entered this enclosure with a meal. I watched as he clipped bananas, cut in half, in various spots around the enclosure. The bats watched him do so. And when he left, they started feeding on the bananas.
Another look at that barn owl.
And another look at that pancake tortoise.
Coming out of the exhibit, I paused to look down to the ground floor and photograph the perspective.
This inflated sculpture is La Meduse, a jellyfish species called Pelagia noctiluca that glows in the dark. It hangs in the Queens Lantern. That's the name of the glass tower.
The modern glass structure works well with the original, I think.
The view looking north up Metcalfe Street leads directly to Parliament Hill.
A view back looks into the atrium area.
This is the view from the back walkway inside the atrium. I was on my way over to the gallery on the other side.
Another perspective looking down.
And one more look up Metcalfe.
With a final look at the outside structure for today. We'll get into that other gallery tomorrow.
