Walking with Dinosaurs show

We travelled to Ottawa to see the Walking with Dinosaurs show. The costumes and mechanical dinosaurs were very impressive. I was hoping to see them up close but that was reserved for a lucky winner who tweeted the best picture of the show in a limited time.

There were man-sized dinosaur costumes. It was easy to ignore the extra legs.

And there were mechanical dinosaurs on low-slung electric cars.

Finally, there were pterosaurs flying on wires.

The pictures are blurry because of the low light levels and moving targets.
