My Sunday Photo – Week 13.


Mark had a couple of days off this week so we paid a visit to Banham Zoo while it was still relatively quiet ahead of the Easter school holidays.

I stopped to take a photo of daffodils, as you do when you’re at the zoo, and Mark hissed: “Tara, turn around!” and there was a Siberian Tiger.

If you look at this quickly taken photo you can see the daffs reflected in the glass. I like this one best, even though it’s not in focus. It feels like s/he is looking right at/through me.


We also had a lovely friendly robin join us for our picnic (I know, not quite the same but exciting none the less).


I’ve mentioned before my unease at visiting zoos but Banham, founded in 1968, seems to have a strong history of education and conservation. In 2013 a charitable trust, the Zoological Society of East Anglia, was formed and both Banham and Africa Alive, are now under that organisation, which has some impressive aims.

  1. We went to the zoo on Friday, but wasn’t lucky enough to see a tiger this close, amazing! Totally agree about feeling uneasy about zoos too, luckily the one we visit is a really good one xx


    1. I’ve been to a couple (in other countries mainly) that have been horrible and I’ve just wanted to leave – and take the animals with me.


  2. Oh my goodness! What amazing photos – I love the one where he is looking right at you! I think UK zoos nowadays are a lot better than the ones I remember from the 1980s and early 90s, they were quite sad places to visit really.
