May’s mini-zoocation continued with a visit to the delightful Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo in Ft Wayne, Indiana. The zoo is a perfect size with a varied and interesting collection of animals. The site lines are terrific and there is something around each bend on the road to surprises. A big shout out to Ann Barker and Director Jim Anderson for making our visit so memorable.

airborne-cubThis fun photo montage is one of my all time favorites. Coincidentally, I first posted it three years ago today. I am also pleased to report that I am returning to the Central Park Zoo this week with camera in hand. Thank you for all of your kind words about my knee surgery and recovery during these past nine weeks. airborne

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

EdithThe four California sea lions who live at the Central Park Zoo never cease to amaze.  They flip, flap, flop and fly across the pool and into the air.  Come watch April, Katie, Edith, little Charlie and of course their dazzling zookeepers daily during their feed and demonstration at 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30 each day.  fff

Nursing GiraffeIt’s been about six months since I last visited the Bronx Zoo.  It is a big zoo with lots of wonderful things to see. Comfortable walking shoes are a must.BRONXZOO4.2014
