Before this week’s 50 degree surge in temperatures we enjoyed some more snowy fun at the Central Park Zoo. There is one more photo series (called Valentine Tails) which will be held on Sun, Feb 11, 2018 8:30AM – 10:00AM. There are a few spaces left. Think hearts and fun.

Winter gave us one last gasp of cold, wind and snow this week. The animals at the Central Park Zoo did not mind at all. Come visit before it all melts away.

6389The Central Park Zoo has been my home base for the past 25 years.  I never tire of the collection of beautiful animals, the landscape, the NYC backdrop, or the variety of visitors, happy faces and delighted children. Today’s montage features just a small sampling of the collection.  Imagine if you will, some of these animals surrounded by carved pumpkins, filled with fun enrichment, during my Fall photo workshop on October 25th from 8:30 to 10:30.
