Continuing Our Cyber Tour of the St. Louis Zoo

These pictures were taken from an overlook above the tiger cage. Or "exhibit" as they would probably say. They are not the best pictures ever. It was a million degrees in St. Louis at the end of August. The overlook was a vast, shadeless expanse. There were sand dunes. I could have been killed by a spiceblow. Really! As it was, I did nearly drown in a puddle of my own sweat and sustained third-degree sunburns on all areas of exposed skin. This is a distracting condition in which to try to photograph moving targets, and I'm sorry that I could not properly capture the adorableness of these tiger cubs during my near-death experience.
