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.

As some of you know, Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and every time I return I get a flashback or two. This week’s visit was no different. I encourage a winter visit. Several new and exciting things to see including the fabulous Pallas Cats and Black-footed cats.
There are a few spots available for my photo workshop at the Central Park Zoo in three weeks. It is called Valentine Tails and will be from 8:30 to 10:30 on February 10, 2019 (think hearts.) The workshop is filling up fast. Click here to sign up.
For those that watched Animal Planet’s series, THE ZOO last year – the show is returning, with all new WCS episodes, on February 10 at 8PM. You might even see some people you know on the episodes. Read about it here.

It has been about three months of Sundays since I last posted a ‘while at the zoo’ about my home base, the Central Park Zoo. If you haven’t been to our zoo in a while the winter is a great time to visit. The crowds are smaller, the tropic aviary is nice and warm and the temperate animals much more active. You can combine your next visit with our upcoming photo workshop. It is called Valentine Tails and will be from 8:30 to 10:30 on February 10, 2019 (think hearts.) The workshop is filling up fast.

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.  

David Traylor Zoo, Emporia Kansas September 30, 2018

Zoo #4 on our Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas zoocation, the David Traylor Zoo was not on our original itinerary but what’s wrong with a three hour diversion to hit another zoo in Kansas? We went for it and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The David Traylor Zoo is the smallest AZA accredited zoo in the nation and it is free. The zoo has nearly 400 specimens of birds, mammals and reptiles representing more than 80 species all exhibited in beautiful, natural habitats. The zoo also features exceptional botanical displays. Was it worth the three hour detour? You bet.

Also, I want to give you a heads up that there are now three new photo sessions listed on the WCS website. The first photo session (think pumpkins) is one month from today. All three can be found here.

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.
