Took a few pictures... not the greatest. Too many people were around to find a good spot. Stupid spring break.

Nice and Zoo, Pt. 2

Houston Zoo

My new camera (D90) came yesterday, so of course I had to go find somewhere to try it out. Thankfully, I get into the Houston Zoo for free!

Even ISO3200 was acceptable to me in some situations.
