Benny-Opens WidePhoto themes are fun.  Sometimes a theme pops into my head while at the zoo and other times the themes are generously offered by my subjects.  Today’s theme is ‘Open Wide.’  It was fun to put together. And yes, that is Benny the dog, opening wide for my camera at home. If you liked today’s photos check out these three other themed montages from 2012.

For those that are looking for a fun zoo photo outing, on Saturday, February 2nd (Groundhog Day) I will be running a Winter Photo Adventure for adults and children at the Central Park Zoo. We will go on a family scavenger hunt in the zoo using our cameras (there is a ‘theme’ involved).  Ticket price includes 1 child and 1 adult. (Ages 6-18 with adult.)  Sign up here – it is listed under ‘family programs.’

That baby bird with the target in its mouth is a Crested Coua, native to Madagascar. The Central Park Zoo successfully bred this cutie this year.

Seeing all those big yawns reminded me how refreshing a good yawn can be. But nothing beats the Crested Coua chick with the target in its mouth. No way mom and dad could miss that. Thanks Judy
