I have a confession: I am a zoo nerd. I go to zoos… a lot. I like to look at cute animals. I like to see how different zoos create enclosures for the critters. I like to see how zoos organize and educate the public about these furry, scaly and wet friends.
Zoos offer an incredible opportunity to get up-close and personal with amazing critters from around the world. For many of us, this is the only time we’ll ever be able to see and learn about many of the animals in the world.
Since I heart zoos so much, I often take way too many photos to capture my experience. These usually result in files of photos that just sit there for all of digital posterity. Since I’ve discovered Instagram on my iPhone, I’ve rediscovered my love of zoo photography. I’m now on the hunt for funny pictures of animals to run through their analog, hipster-esque photo filters.
I try to write witty captions for these hipster critters. It’s all a lot silly. I hope you enjoy my collection of Hipster Zoo Animals!
