Our final stop on our mini-zoocation was the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. We hadn’t been there since 2010 and there were many positive changes to this large zoo. Thanks to our hosts, Amy and Jenny for showing us around town and sharing their home with us. Among the many zoo surprises were three snow leopard kittens, a baby rhino, an adorable young orangutan and a baby Persian onager (horse).

I wanted to visit the Bronx Zoo one more time before the cold weather sets in. Winter visits are fun too but who knows when we will get snow this year?  My visit proved great – highlighted by an adorable snow leopard cub, sea lion pup, growing tiger cubs, baby squirrel monkey, young gorillas and Angolan monkey and much more. I logged in at 7.5 miles but it was worth every step.

I love cats – both big and small.  This week’s montage is dedicated to these gorgeous creatures.  See if you can identify 14 out of the 37 cat species in the world.

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

While recovering from knee replacement surgery (ouch) I continue to recycle some of my older Sunday photo montages until I am back in camera ready action. NYC got about six inches of snow this weekend and it reminded of our first big snow back in 2014.firstbigsnow2014

A good way to catch up with an old friend is to take a long drive. And so we did – all the way south to the Cape May County Park and Zoo. The zoo covers about 85 acres of habitats and is free – yes, free. This is my third visit to the zoo and it did not disappoint. We did not see any snow leopard cubs as we did in 2013  but we did see active ocelots, lions, tigers and cheetahs along with beautiful large savannah area. The zoo is open year round and I imagine it is delightful in all seasons.  And yes, my old friend and I are all caught up.

A reminder that we are running two photo classes at the Central Park Zoo and registration in now open. Do I hear pumpkins?CMCZ

MALALAI love snow days.  We did not get the predicted amount of snow but we got enough to allow the Central Park Zoo animals to really enjoy themselves.  (Me too). Here’s a a fun trip down memory lane.  Zoe, at three years old, enjoyed her first snow at the Central Park Zoo on December 20, 2009.  SNOWDAY

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
