Rhinoceros ~ Phoenix Zoo

    BEST ON BLACK

    The Rhinoceros
    by Ogden Nash

    The rhino is a homely beast,
    For human eyes he's not a feast.
    Farwell, farewell, you old rhinoceros,
    I'll stare at something less prepoceros.

    Yesterday was a beautiful day in Phoenix Arizona, it was in the low 70F's, a perfect day for a trip to the zoo. I went with my daughter Az Karen and one of her friends.

    Thank you Flickr Friends, I appreciate your visits, comments and favs.

      This is a great capture of these odd-looking creatures! I had the opportunity to actually hand feed them in San Diego- quite an experience!
