    Shooting Wild Animals...With Your Camera!

    ••• This Emu Refused to Move.

    Harmony Park Safari is an unusual attraction for Huntsville. I haven't laughed so much in a long time as I did when my friend Nancy and I went to check out Harmony Park Safari, a federally licensed nature preserve of free-ranging exotic & endangered animals. This is a "drive-through" animal park where you are required to remain in your car on the two-mile route to see zebras, zebus, antelope, buffalo, a camel, ostriches, pythons & crocodiles. We tried to roll down the car windows to get clearer pictures, but the animals thought we had food and came right up to the car. We played a hasty game of hide-and-seek with them...sometimes almost loosing out to the emus!

    Four-legged Creatures...

    One of the "dangers" of driving through a "safari" is that animals will cross in front of you and it's up to you to yield the right of way to them.

    Habib, the Camel, laid down to watch us driving around and around trying to catch some of the animals in a perfect pose. He seemed content to show us his best side.
