Canon ZOOM is an event hold by Canon CZ and it takes place in zoos in the Czech Republic. The purpuse of this event is to present both new and older photo cameras, lens and also Canon printers in attractive surroundings. Although I don’t use Canon’s products I visit this event almost every year because all the participants can use a opportunity to print some of their photos. Also there is a contest, the five best photos win some prices.
In the morning the weather looked very good, the sun was shining and there were some small clouds on the sky. Later before noon the sky became cloudy but I didn’t mind is as long as it’s not raining. I stayed in the lower part of the zoo and took some photos of the eurasian spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia) which was, again, sitting in its nest hidden behing leaves.

As the weather was getting colder and I expected rain, I moved closer to the main buildings in the zoo where I would be able to hide from rain. Near those building is exhibit of lemurs. There are ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) and white-headed lemur (Eulemur albifrons) in my photos.

Finally, it did start raining and it rained quite heavily, there was even a storm. It didn’t take very long but after a while I got bored and from the place where I was hidding I took some photos of wild ducks, who apparently didn’t mind the rain.
Afterall, it wasn’t really bad day although it was raining. I took some nice photos and had some of them printed.
