This was taken at the OK City Zoo. CJ got a call from her grandma so she was sitting on a bench and I was just walking around looking for things to shoot. I noticed this tree kinda glowing so I took a few shots. I heard some talking behind me and when I turned I noticed some other zoo visitors were searching intently to see what kind of animal was in the tree!

Have a great week!!!
