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.

We had three days of snow in NYC this week. I am lucky. I do not have to shovel or drive in the snow. I am a mass transit kind of gal. I get to reap the rewards of freshly fallen snow photographing beautiful animals enjoying it as much as I do. That said, I salute the zookeepers, managers and maintenance department for working so hard to get our zoo open at 10AM so that the public can enjoy a  beautiful, safe space.

My good friend and zoocation buddy Mary Schwalm has created another sensational 2018 Calendar. They are $10 each and are great for the office party and gift exchanges. CD sized calendar are perfect for a desk. Send an email at maryschwalm@gmail.com and get your order shipping by Monday. I got mine in the mail and love them. (See example below today’s photo montage).

Thought I would share some of my very favorite faces that I work with at the Central Park Zoo. Their beauty makes my job simple.

The term ‘sitting ducks’ is usually not taken literally – but here you go. For those that ask me to identify my photos the following ducks are featured today. Chinese Mandarins, Spectacled and Common Eiders, Red-breasted Mergansers, Harlequins, Marbled Teal, White-headed, Pink-eared, Falcated, Philippine, Ruddy shelducks, Long-tailed, Scaly sided Mergansers, Pygmy geese (really ducks) and Baer’s Pochard. All of these photos were taken at the Central Park Zoo and the mature ducks can be seen today at the  Zoo.
I will be running my seventh annual October (think pumpkins) photo series experience at the Central Park Zoo on Sun, Oct 29, 2017 from 8:30AM – 10:00AM. It is filling up fast. For tickets click here.

BettyAs most of you know, on the first day of spring we got four inches of snow in the Big Apple.  I thought it was a good time to share some of the last snowy day zoo photos for awhile (I hope).LASTGASP

CPZ GrizzlyYes, it is cold but if you are dressed correctly winter is just about the best time to visit a zoo. The crowds are gone and many of the temperate animals are more active and engaging.  Today’s montage is devoted to that energy.

Want to see these gorgeous animals up close an very personal?  Come to my next Wildlife Photo Workshop at the Central Park Zoo on Sunday, January 25th from 8:30 to 10:30. Click here, scroll to Adult Programs and sign up.winterfun
