We headed south for a day trip to the Philadelphia Zoo this week. Other than the enormous crowds (who knew it would be crowded on a Tuesday)? –  we had a fun visit. Many additions and upgrades were noted, including the repurposed polar bear exhibit which is now inhabited by penguins. Also we noticed many more bird habitats, tree top trails and food options. The Philadelphia Zoo is always a fun visit.

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Enjoy some of these sweet lambs in today’s photo montage. All of these photos were taken at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Sorry to say they have all grown up now but I remember them as they were – so very cute.

The zoo of my childhood is always fun to visit. Seeing snow amidst the animal collection makes for some pretty photo ops too. Go visit!

We took a mid-week trip to DC and due to a teeny weeny snowfall the city was shut down for an entire day. So we visited the following day and even though there was very little snowfall the visit was well worth our time. Who doesn’t love a giant panda in the snow?

Last Sunday’s Valentine Tails photo class was a big hit. Everyone had a good time, great photos were taken and most of all, the animals at the Central Park Zoo got terrific heart themed enrichment created by an amazing zoo keeper staff (special shout out to Nora and Tumeca). Despite the cold weather there were smiles all around. Enjoy today’s heartfelt photos and hopefully you will sign up for the last photo class of the season. It is going to be held on Sunday, May 19 from 8:30 to 10:30. It is already half filled. Click here for more info.

Taking zoo photos on a bright sunny day can be a challenge. I prefer taking photos on overcast days. Sometimes however, the deep shadows and stark contrasts create an interesting image. Enjoy today’s Me and My Shadow.

Perhaps we humans all gain a bit of weight in the winter. Today’s montage salutes animals who make healthy food choices all year round.

Our mini-zoocation in late October continued with a visit to the Capron Park Zoo in Attleboro MA. The Capron Park Zoo was established in 1937 on land donated by the Capron family. The zoo is situated on eight acres and has been open since 1937. We had not been to the Capron Park Zoo in about 10 years and were happy to see that some of the animals we remembered were still there. If you are in the area I suggest a visit.
