Polar Bears, Butterflies and other things

Light mist was falling and winds gusting when I attended an environmental workshop at the Detroit Zoo----
"a workshop to begin a comprehensive process of assessing southeast
Michigan's knowledge of the environment and its impact on on it."
When the workshop ended a half dozen of us went out to explore the zoological grounds.
We were kids again. --A few favorite photos follow.
The zoo is great to visit with the big crowds gone, regardless of the weather.
