Had another chance to spend the day working at the Prospect Park Zoo this week. The zoo looks beautiful and the collection animals active. I probably spent too much time watching the baby red panda Ban Li and and his mom, Willow. Go visit if you can.

Our recent visit to New Mexico included a visit to the wonderful 64 acre Albuquerque Zoo. A shout out to Karen and Keith for making our visit so very special. The zoo is beautiful and filled with a varied collection of amazing animals. They are in the midst of building a new penguin habitat that promises to be terrific. I will be back to see that when it is open next year.
My good friend and zoocation buddy Mary Schwalm has created another sensational 2018 Calendar. They are $10 each and are great for the office party and gift exchanges. CD sized calendar are perfect for a desk. Send an email at maryschwalm@gmail.com and get your order shipping by Monday. I have already sent her my check. (See sample below today’s photo montage).

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade November 26, 2017

We scored bleacher tickets to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Truth be told, I am not a fan of parades, but my house guests were thrilled – so off we went. The bad news was that we arrived so early so had to endure the frigid temperatures for almost two hours before the parade. The good news is that we got great seats. We totally enjoyed the event. The crowd was upbeat, the kids delightful and my hats off to the many New York City workers who held it all together. We had to leave early in order to get ready for our own turkey dinner so we missed Santa’s arrival. We all thawed out by around three PM. Most likely I will not repeat this activity – but we had a grand time. Thank you Macy’s and NYC.

We spent five fun-filled days with a great friend in Albuquerque NM last week. She had been inviting me for many years to come visit the Bosque del Apache refuge to see the wintering grounds of the sandhill crane, snow geese and more. We delighted at both sunset and sunrise to see the birds flock by the thousands. The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is located in southern New Mexico. It was founded in 1939 and is administered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  An eight mile loop allows us to view these amazing animals without disturbing them.

One more photo series (called Valentine Tails) will be held on Sun, Feb 11, 2018 8:30AM – 10:00AM. Sign up now – it fills up quickly

I took my annual trip north to New England to visit good friends last week. We laughed, had great food, enjoyed the autumnal leaves and of course, visited a zoo or two. Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon MA is always on our list and does not disappoint. We will be back.

Lookin at YouWildlife photography is great fun.  We wait and wait and wait for those special moments.  Sometimes, if we are lucky, the moment happens when your subject is now looking back at you, while you are looking at them. (Except for the bottom photo that cries out for the caption ‘No more photos!’).


All of today’s photos were shot at the Central Park Zoo.

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.
