My family did what can be termed as 180 degrees tourism at Toronto Zoo, Markham, Ontario. We watched attractions other than the main attractions, which, of course, it being a zoo, were animals.
It was a magnificent display of flowers and of floral designs.

we were at the zoo, indeed!
starting with the real beauties
Ignored by the zoo visitors in favour of watching animals, I was there with a mission.

Bees and bumble bees were all over the flowering plants.

Ring-billed gulls have individual personalities. I am never tired of seeing them and enjoying their antics. The house sparrow mom was still feeding the chicks even though they were flying all along with her. Peafowls were all in the open and children were specially fascinated by their presence. And the peacocks put on a dazzling show to impress all and sundry.
last but not the least
There were animal babies that have recently been born. Here is a glimpse of them.
