After eight long months of being on the island of Manhattan I took the Q train and ventured to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo this week. As most of you know, the Prospect Park Zoo was the zoo of my youth and I have a special place for it in my heart. It was a fun, productive visit and it was great to see the friendly faces of the staff and of course to revisit their wonderful collection of animals. Enjoy this week’s salute to Brooklyn and please wear a mask, socially distance, wash your hands and be safe.

 I had the pleasure of spending a few days in the past month at the Prospect Park Zoo. As some of you know – this was the zoo of my childhood so it holds a very special place in my heart. I googled Prospect Park Zoo and got some interesting history facts here. Please visit if you can while their two red panda cubs are still young and you might also get to see their week old baby boy Hamadryas baboon.
 Can’t decide what to get that special somebody on your holiday list? How about buying tickets to one of Central Park Zoo’s photo sessions. Check them out here:

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.

Spent another work day this week at my childhood zoo – the Prospect Park Zoo. The zoo looks amazing. It is green, vibrant and fun. Enjoy a June day in Brooklyn!

I had another chance to spend a few days working at the Prospect Park Zoo this past month. The zoo looks beautiful and the collection animals active. Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo was the zoo of my childhood and whenever I visit I get a few fond flashbacks. Go visit if you can.

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!

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.

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.

Had another chance to spend the day working at the Prospect Park Zoo this week. The zoo looks beautiful and the collection animals active. I probably spent too much time watching the baby red panda Ban Li and and his mom, Willow. Go visit if you can.

One of my favorite books as a kid was ‘ A Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ by Betty Smith. Today’s photo montage salutes the Prospect Park Zoo which grows (just like that tree) with each of my visits. I have mentioned that the Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and it still holds a special place in my heart. Go visit!
