Bristol Zoo Gardens

This week I enjoyed a trip to Bristol Zoo Gardens with some of my housemates. We had a fantastic time and, having not been since I was very small, I got rather nostalgic! There have been some new additions since I was last there as well, including gorillas and hippos.

Aptly, for those of you who don't know, the correct collective noun for flamingos is a 'flamboyance'. This little fact makes me much happier than it probably should! I find that flamingos are really quite lovely to draw. I also liked this Komodo dragon. Normally when you see lizards in zoos, they quite happily lie there, not doing very much, but this guy was very active. This both works for and against the artist; there are some great poses, but you only have a short amount of time to get them drawn!
