A Day at the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens

I got to spend the day at the Palm Desert Living Desert Zoo & Gardens on November 12, 2014. What an amazing place! The Zoo features two main exhibits: North American and African desert animals. I didn’t get to see everything and got distracted by a hummingbird and dragonfly along the way, but some of the pictures I did end up with are stunning.
