A recent trip to visit old friends in Toledo and South Bend, Indiana was loads of fun. Our friend, Josh Sisk is now acting director at the Potawatomi Zoo and is doing an amazing job. What a fun visit and reunion.  This 23 acre facility is beautiful – with a varied and interesting collection. The sightlines are wonderful and the habitats are large and user friendly to the visitor. They have eight species of primates, four species of big cats, Sichuan Takins (with two babies), camels, okapis and much more. There is something new and fascinating around every corner. Thank you Josh for your generosity and time. We loved our visit and will be back for sure.

Last Sunday’s photo enrichment session at the Central Park Zoo was lots of fun for both the animals and photographers. It was a glorious day. The sun was out, the temperature ideal and the animals all set to be enriched. A special shout out to our amazing zookeepers who created the enrichment items. Enjoy!

As most of you know, the Central Park Zoo is my home base. While fall is my favorite season I admit to being captivated with spring too. Our cool, rainy weather has made everything green and colorful. Today is our final zoo photo session of the season featuring flowers as animal enrichment. I am optimistic it will be a successful, fun visit for all. Photos, next week.

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.
