Summer in the zoo

On sunday I spent a lovely morning at the zoo, visiting old favourits and new arrivals. The little giraffe was born just a few days ago and was lovely to sketch while it rested.
It's mum (or aunt) was not so easy to capture as she was either eating or walking around, but I finally did manage to get her head quite well.

And of course I had to visit Vladimir, whom I had not seen quite some time. I only managed a quick sketch as people were arriving for feeding time and I did not enjoy sitting in the middle of all that.
I did manage a quick sketch of his hand though.
It was a rather hot, sunny day and the rhinos were sleeping in the shade - how advantagious for sketching!
