Last week found us on the West Coast visiting family.  A trip to the terrific, ever growing San Francisco Zoo is always on a West Coast agenda. Enjoy some of my photos below.

Today is my fall photography workshop at the Central Park Zoo.  The class is sold out and should be lots of fun — think pumpkins.

There are lots of other fun and interesting classes going on at the zoo through March.  For instance, on Saturday, November 5th, our terrific Vet Tech is giving a class on what it is like to take care of all of the animals in the zoo.  Check it out and the other classes here.

Last weekend found us traveling south to the always enchanting, Philadelphia Zoo.  They have had a delightful baby boom.  We only got to see the adorable jaguar cub but that was plenty of cuteness for one trip.  We will return soon.  Check out my video of Baby girl Batu, born in October of 2009, at three months old. Her mother is called Tua and father is named Sugi.

Fall fun for all at the Central Park Zoo.  This week’s photo montage features some of our beautiful mammals.  Check out Gus, our polar bear, Amaya, one of our red pandas, a snow leopard, one of our three coatis, a sea lion, snow monkey, cavies and a mound of banded mongooses. Also included is our fast growing Baby Irene Hope, born during Hurricane Irene and Oliver, one of our pot-bellied pigs. Those sensational ducks are rajahs, pink-eared and harlequin. Come visit!

Nothing says fun like a day being surrounded by fabulous animals and being able to get up close and personal with them.  We spent an unforgettable day at Six Flags Wild Safari in Jackson NJ, took more photos than ever and smiled for hours afterwards.  I highly recommend this experience for one and all.

Want to bring your camera and get up-close to animals at the Central Park Zoo?  There are only three spaces available for my Fall Foliage Photography Workshop  at the Central Park Zoo on October 23, 2012.  Sign up – it will be fun. The last part of the workshop will find us going to the Apple store for some fun lessons in editing from their resident genius gang.

I thought sharing some photos of adorable baby animals residing at the Central Park Zoo would give you a much needed smile on this most difficult of anniversary days. Smile at our baby banded mongooses, baby Patagonian cavy, Baby Irene Hope (the lamb born during Hurricane Irene), a Nicobar Pigeon chick, a young Red Panda, a very wet snow monkey, two gorgeous snow leopards and a very fast growing scarlet Ibis chick.

Check out the Fall/Winter Programs being offered at the Central Park Zoo including four of my photography workshops. You can also now register on line.

As Hurricane Irene blasts the NYC area and we are advised to stay indoors I flash back to last weekend’s quick trip to New England to visit friends.  The goal was whale watching but the whales were out of range so we easily opted for visits to three zoos in two days.  Here is the first of those visits (more later today). If you did not see my pre-hurricane Irene posts from yesterday, are homebound and looking for some visual entertainment check out this post: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/deconstructing-casa-lobo/  and this one: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/waiting/
Don’t forget to check out the adorable Mandrill baby video below today’s montage.

Happy Father’s Day!  Enjoy this photo salute to some of the animal kingdom’s Dads. On a different subject, yesterday was the celebration of the sixth anniversary of the day I adopted my little dog, Benny.  Savor this little video I created last year to honor his fifth anniversary.

Zoo #4 of our ‘Six Zoos in Six Days‘ zoo-cation was the terrific, FREE, Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. It is the perfect size, easy to get to and is the perfect people’s park.  Did I mention it is FREE?
