After living in Southern California for 5 years now, I finally decided it was time to make my way to the L.A. Zoo. After reading on their website about the botanical garden, I figured it would be a perfect chance for me to take get some macro shots in of the flowers. The Zoo itself seemed rather nice, almost everything was well kept and the inside was very clean. I did find the “botanical” garden to be quite disappointing, though. The flowers were spread out throughout the park in small portions and the majority of the flowers seemed to be partially dead (I’m sure the time of year may have had something to do with that, though). The animals however, were quite nice, though there weren’t as many there as I’d hoped to see. For the price of admission, you definitely get your moneys worth, but I didn’t stay more than three hours, since I’d pretty much already seen everything there was to see.
