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

For all of those camera enthusiasts out there, I’ll be running a Fall Foliage photography workshop at the Central Park Zoo on  October 19 from 8:30 to 10:30.

Mongoose pupIt has been almost four months since I shared photos from my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Our May, all Tennessee Zoocation, my June Arctic adventure and visits to other terrific zoos have made me derelict in sending out photos from my favorite zoo. Enjoy!CPZ7.2014

AskaiWe did not get much snow earlier this week but we got enough for some fun snow photos of the zoo residents (especially the snow leopard twins) enjoying their first snow of the season.  My own kittens, Audrey and Roberta, enjoyed watching their first snowfall too.  Check out the video below today’s photo montage.

Rodriguez Fruit BatIt has been a couple of months of Sundays (and occasional Wednesdays) since I have featured my home base, the Central Park Zoo.   There’s lots going on at NYC’s little gem of a zoo.  We have three Swan Goose goslings, young Patagonian Cavy twins, baby Banded Mongooses and a young Victorian Crowned Pigeon.  The usual cast of other wonderful animals includes Gus the polar bear, three acrobatic sea lions, April, Katy and Edith and the largest sea duck collection in a zoo in North America.  Come visit – There’s no place like home!

the easter bennyRarely a holiday goes by (whether we celebrate it or not here at Casa Lobo) that doesn’t cry out for a new hat that Benny the dog can wear. Enjoy this year’s Easter Benny..

Spring has sprung at the Central Park Zoo. The flowers are waking up after a long winter, and our animals are more active than ever.  Come visit us.

Our Breakfast with the Birds class (April 28th) is sold out but there are a few spaces left in our Family Program, Images in Spring (Sunday, April 14th from 9 to 10:30).  This family program is designed for parents and kids to share a photo adventure before the zoo opens.

biru-winterWe have been experiencing some bitter cold temperatures in the Big Apple this week and we finally got something pretty out of all of that shivering.  A light coating of snow fell Friday night and I was inspired to photograph some of the beautiful animals at the Central Park Zoo enjoying this winter’s First taste of Snow.
