I admit it. One of my favorite days of the year at the Central Park Zoo is Pumpkin Sunday. ‘You get a pumpkin and you get a pumpkin and…’ Our photo workshop last Sunday was a big hit with some very happy photographers, enriched animals, delighted zookeepers and zoo visitors. This was the first in a series of three photography workshops. The next one features hearts, valentines and lots of love. You can sign up here if interested.

This was a fun montage to create. I didn’t realize how many animals could be included in this red, white and blue themed photo montage. Most of the animals depicted were taken at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Obvious exclusions are the giant panda, cassowary (above) and the arctic fox (although we used to house that species) and the red-eyed tree frog (taken at the Prospect Park Zoo). Hope you all have a very safe and happy Fourth of July.

Last week’s trip to the west coast was filled with great weather, family fun and a few adventures. A west coast visit would not be complete without a stop at the San Francisco Zoo. There were lots of new animals to see (wolves, bears, sifakas) and improvements to many habitats. A shout out to Dominick, who always makes our visit better and more memorable.

We spent a delightful day at the NYBG where 17 rarely seen Hawaiian paintings by Georgia O’keeffe are on display. The Conservatory is adorned with flowers and plants from Hawaii that influenced these works. The show is on thru October 28th and I encourage you to visit. Don’t miss the short video and of course the paintings (in the Mertz Library) which explains why she went and how she was inspired by the islands.

Zoo visitors love to watch the resident animals eat.  Not sure why other than it is fun to see what they eat, how they eat and for sure – when they are eating – they are not sleeping.  Here are some of my favorites.

Spring has finally really sprung (if you don’t mind all of the rain we have had) in New York City. The Central Park Zoo looks especially lush and beautiful. My favorite flowers and trees are in season including laburnum, redbud, wisteria, allium, tulips and daffodils. Come visit.

I bit the bullet this week and tried out my new shoulder while carrying the big camera, not just the phone. The good news is that all went well and I will be headed back to my zoo job shortly. My sports career may be over (inset laughter here), but not my photography gig. The Prospect Park Zoo was fun, as always.

Last Sunday’s fun photo Valentine opportunity at the Central Park Zoo was wet, cold and windy but it did not deter our hearty group of wildlife photographers. Today’s montage includes photos from last Sunday and photos from a much sunnier experience back in 2016.

Zoo photography is both challenging and fun. They say the eyes are the window to the soul – I don’t know about that – but I do know if you can capture a gorgeous creature looking back at you – it is a great photo moment. Today’s montage is devoted to those moments. And yes, you will see my Jack the one-eyed dog depicted here as well. Speaking of Jack, while on a walk in Madison Square Park on Friday we met the Dogist. He took Jack’s photo, chatted and we shared some information. The rest is history. As of this morning, his Instagram photo of Jack had 155,000 likes.
