A Trip To The Zoo

I don't know why but ever since I was a little boy, I have always had this fascination with learning more about nature and especially animals. I picked a degree is heavily animal based which I am hoping is going to help me get a job where I am able to travel the world and help animals, seems a bit unrealistic and far-fetched but I'm just keeping in the frame of mind of 'anything is possible when you're passionate and put your mind to it'! I have always had pets and always absolutely loved visiting the zoo to see animals that I would otherwise have to travel the world to experience the full glory of. Unfortunately you're not actually allowed to have pets while living in most accommodations at university (which sucks for an animal person, but it is probably for the best since my house would probably be like a little zoo) so I jumped at the chance to go along to Woodside Wildlife and Falconry Park, which gave us the opportunity to see a variety of donated and rescued animals from all corners of the globe. One of the best selling points is that it has one of the only public collections of Arctic wolves in the UK, and trust me, it is so unbelievably amazing to be able to get up close and personal to such an incredible animal, pretty impressive for something that started out as somebodies back garden!

I also got to overcome the silly little fear that I have always had of snakes by actually getting to hold one called Jeremy, it wasn't actually as terrifying as I always imagined it to be and their bodies are so much smoother and warmer than you would think. It was another great experience, even if he did try and crawl into my hood and down my jumper (luckily the snake guy saved me).

I had the most amazing day out in the fresh air of the countryside, which definitely makes a welcome change when you feel like you're a country boy stuck in the middle of a busy city, and since my blogging aim for this year is to try harder at improving my photography, I thought that it might be a good idea to share some of the photos with you guys to see what you think and let you experience the wonderful animals for yourself, plus who doesn't love pictures of cute little animals?!

I would really appreciate some feedback about the photography, and also be sure to let me know what your favourite part about the zoo is!
