The Devonian Garden and the Calgary Zoo had fish and animals for me to take photos of! It was nice just for me to change my shooting style a bit after posing and taking pictures of people for the last 8 months. It was challenging because I would have to wait for my subjects to do something interesting, but it was also fun and rewarding when the waiting pays off and I get to capture a candid photo of penguins interacting with each other or a lion in mid-yawn.
The Devonian Garden had lots of Koi fish swimming around the pond. It was a very tranquil and serene environment to be in... unless you have kids playing off key on a piano that is located next to the pond.
These two are either BFF's or enemies for life because they were interacting with each other like the picture above for 15 minutes on and off. I wish I knew more about penguins.
This little guy was interested interested in something that was beside me, but I'm glad because I wouldn't have gotten this shot otherwise.
These guys were not as active as the tigers, but they did pose for nice shots! I wish I could say that he was roaring, but a yawn makes for a nice picture too.
This one tiger was just strolling around its territory getting some exercise in while all the other tigers were just lying around. Good for you, buddy!
All-in-all, it was a fun trip. Got to take a few nice photos as a tourist (even though I've been to calgary multiple times before this). Definitely still have more places to explore in Alberta so check back often!
