Lowry Park Zoo – Photographing Babies- Tampa, Florida

Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo has been one of my favorite places for many years.   I volunteered as a Docent and as a Keepers’ Assistant many years ago.  When we moved farther east of Tampa it was just too much of a commute to make on a regular basis on top of my 9-5 job so I gave it up.  But I still like to visit every now & then, especially in the winter & spring months when the animals are more active!  Lowry Park Zoo is a relatively small zoo
