This was taken at the Audubon Zoo on a very hot day in August. The Audubon Zoo is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. This area is home to many oak trees, which are known for being hundreds of years old.
The heat is amplified in Louisiana due to the humidity. This makes a 95 degree day feel like 110 degrees. I snapped this picture after being there for several hours and could not wait to leave the heat behind. The humidity is one of the most miserable things to do with living here and I look forward to moving to a better climate in the future.
