Critters from the Zoo in our City Park and Apricot Blossom;

Critters from the Zoo in Tokiwa Park
As you might notice from the Ginkgo Tree and yellow fallen leaves; I visited the zoo in our city park last late Nov. As I wasn't so active lately, let me post this visit I haven't posted yet.  I feel a little sad that I can't introduce as many of them I wish to post here.

White Gibbon

Upper Right is Northern Plains Gray Langur 
Lion-Tailed Macaque and De Brazza's Monkey
Lama Glama
Happily I could see this open wing; Hopefully it were a fine day.
But I remember that their sweet faces comforted and relaxed me♪

Japanese Apricot Blossom
These pictures were taken at the city park as well on March 1st when we had to do some errand close-by. As I guessed it was a little early for full bloom to have good shots of them with whole trees. So I tried to take them with zoomed ones. Fortunately, it was a fine day♪

We both are suffering pollen allergy ;-) 
Hope you all are having healthy Spring and Autumn days.

  1. Great fall photos with all the colorful leaves but I am really loving the spring blossoms on the trees!

  2. Dear Miyako,
    the photos are great!
    Have a nice day

  3. Wow what awesome photos, I did so like

  4. I love the peaceful face of lama glama! And I enjoyed the video of the monkey. Amazing how he can fly from tree to tree!
    Beautiful blossoms under a blue sky. Feels a lot like spring :-) I’m sorry you are suffering from allergy. Here in Georgia, pollen in spring is really bad—it’s a tough season for those who are allergic to it.
    I hope you have a wonderful new week, Miyako san! xo

  5. Great animal photos dear Miyako ! And of course Love the apricots in bloom - what a beautiful sight <3 Wishing happy MM.

  6. Miyako - as you know, I often do posts that look backward in time. I find it refreshing to review what things looked like even six months ago. So I enjoyed our visit to the zoo and the beauty of the ginkgo leaves. And then fast forward to the apricots in bloom - what a contrast! Here in Montana we are still having VERY cold temperatures (negative 5 Fahrenheit as I am writing this.) Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  7. The pink and white apricot look fantastic, Miyako! The monkeys made me laugh, but the flamingos were very beautiful. Happy you captured one with an open wing! Many thanks for sharing with All Seasons, and hope your allergies will soon be over (or die down -didn't know if you know that saying, it means diminish). Have a happy and beautiful week:)

  8. Dearest Miyako,
    Lovely photos and amazing monkeys, they seem to be quite happy too.
    Enjoy your apricot blossoms, can't believe it really is getting into spring season.
    We will have two nights of frost, hope the last ones.

  9. Beautiful photos of your outings. Flamingos are such pretty birds, so striking with their pink feathers. Happy days to you, Miyako.

  10. Your first photos from the zoo make me realize how long it has been since I have been to one..and your blossom photos are beautiful.

  11. It's fun to see critters when they are so well cared for. Lovely images of then and the flowers, too. Thank you for linking up to My Corner of the World!

  12. Hello Miyako, sorry you are having problems with spring allergies. The blossoms are beautiful. The Ginkgo Tree is a pretty yellow. I love all the monkeys, llamas and the flamingos. Beautiful critters and photos. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, I appreciate your visit and comment on my blog.

  13. Hello. The blossoms are beautiful. Great photos.

  14. Beautiful photos. Love the flamingos, don't often see them in zoos.

  15. What a wonderful zoo to visit. The Flamingos are so beautiful and one of my favorites to see in the wild. Love your Spring blossoms too. We have pollen here in Florida now too and I try to get out a little every day to keep from having a shock when I want to hike or walk. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Diane
