Feeding Time at The Zoo?

We went to the Alexandria Zoo yesterday for their annual free admission day and had a blast.  This zoo has really grown and added on see the following link: Alexandria Zoological Park.  We always love to check out the duck over by the shrimp boat display.

We noticed a squirrel there eating away at the duck food and only one duck on one side of the dish as we watched it became noticeable at how scared the ducks were of the squirrel as they tired to circle wide around the squirrel to get to the food.  One even had a pronounced limp and sure enough as they got around the feeder to eat the squirrel snarled at them and chased them off.

I guess this there is no love lost there between ducks and the squirrel.

The little tree out front wasn’t planted back then but it is amazing how the sign that was there has been well for a lack of a better thought eaten by the young tree as it grow.

This is in reassuring to me to see how plants are determine to go on and well can do so quiet well on their own.

If you are interested this church is for sale.
