The Dublin Zoo is a fantastic diversion (even if you don't have kids!). We embarked on a weekend photo safari to Phoenix Park to check it out recently.There were definitely photo ops galore. You can click on any of the collages below to see full-sized versions of the pictures. We started by checking out the meerkats. They were delightful to watch as they constantly surveyed their surroundings.
The rhino is one of my favorite animals. It's tragic to think that they are being poached to extinction in Africa to fuel the Asian quack medical trade (rhino horn is said to promote virility but it's basically made of fingernails). Bunk.
Giraffes are another of my favorite animals. It started to rain during our visit to Dublin Zoo and the giraffes all lined up underneath a tree to protect themselves from the weather.
