A trip to the Platte River, Nebraska in March included a stop at the Henry Doorley Zoo in Omaha where our group was treated to a behind the scenes tour. It actually turned out to be an “in the scenes” tour as we were lured by our host into the frozen world of penguins! They have no fear of people, and often got too close for me to focus my camera.
This last photo is of a King Penguin. I’m not sure of the other two species, but all were in the exhibit together and got along very well.
