Lincoln Park Zoo, part 1

Here are some photos from our walk through the zoo, in random order.





It was so pretty, with the trees in bloom everywhere and new green leaves coming out.


We saw so many of those fuschia-colored trees everywhere we went in Chicago, but we didn't know what they were. Can anybody identify them for me? Below is a closer look.


The zoo had lots of tulips blooming, too, as you can see below, along with lilac bushes and other plants. And there's another of those fuschia trees.


 

These monkeys were indoors, and it was pretty hard to get pics of them, because they kept moving too much. Plus without a flash, they're not very clear, but you get the idea. (Click to enlarge and see them better.)


In the bottom right two pics were a mother and youngster. The right pic shows "snack time". :)

And here's some monkey action, as well as I could capture it, at least.
