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

8/20/15

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

MalalaWinter is the best time to visit snow leopards at the Central Park Zoo.  Come meet Zoe and her six month old cub, Malala in one habitat and daddy Askai in another.  If you are in Bryant Park this winter, check out the Celsius Bar and Restaurant, which has great views of the skating rink, tree and shops. The Celsius Bar also features Snow Leopard Vodka  along with four of my huge photos of the Central Park Zoo’s snow leopards on display thru March 1st.  Very very cool indeed. You can get an idea of the facility as you scroll down today’s montage.

BiruZoo photography is both challenging and fun. They say the eyes are the window to the soul – I don’t know about that – but I do know if you can capture a gorgeous creature looking back at you – it is a great photo moment.  A special connection is made between the subject and the viewer. Today’s montage is devoted to those moments.

Are you getting a new camera, lens or phone for Christmas, Hanukkah (or whatever you celebrate)?  Why not try it out at my next Wildlife Photo Workshop at the Central Park Zoo on Sunday, January 25th from 8:30 to 10:30.  Perhaps we will get lucky and have snowy photo ops but I can surely guarantee you will see some new residents at the zoo and have fun all before the zoo opens to the public. Click here, scroll to Adult Programs and sign up.

My zoocation buddy and good friend Mary Schwalm is again offering her amazing 2015 desk calendars. The images are from this year’s zoocations. The calendar makes a great gift for office an swap, holiday party, stocking stuffer, and a unique gift to enjoy throughout the year. Just $10 – for details click here.15calendareyeshaveit
