Pictures of the Zoolights at the Stone Zoo (27 pictures)

On December 26th, I went to the Stone zoo in Stoneham, Massachusetts to see their zoolights after dark. Unfortunately, in the middle of it, the battery from my main camera (E-510) died, and I had to continue with my pocket camera (SP-550UZ).
