SnowLeopards‘Tis the season for gift giving and one of the great things about zoos is that gifts are in abundance and they keep on giving all year long. Today’s montage is devoted to some of the 2014 gifts at the Central Park Zoo.  Included are two adorable, recently arrived, juvenile harbor seals, two sunbittens, a Victorian crowned-pigeon, leaf-tailed geckos, red-crested turaco chicks, Papaya the sheep, a white-naped crane chick, poison dart frogs, oodles of endangered duckings and of course, Malala, the snow leopard cub. Stay tuned to meet Betty and Veronica, two grizzly bears who will be making their debut soon. Come visit the zoo and give yourself a gift.GIFTGIVING

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

SNOWZILLA PANDAThe winter presses on – with over 56 inches of snow in NYC  in 2014. I am not sure how many more Sunday montage titles I can use – maybe Snowmageddon is next. The Central Park Zoo animals (especially the snow leopards, snow monkeys and red pandas) are my snow muses.  Also watch a lovely video that my friend and Zoo Guide Wendy Walters made of our adorable cubs as they romped in the snow. A shout out to Wendy for deleting the sound of my clicking camera while she was filming.

  – Come visit!

If you enjoy my weekly photos, how about signing up for my next Central Park Zoo Photography Workshop on Sunday, March 9, from 8:30 to 10:30.  Experience breakfast and a photo shoot with our Tropical Birds and maybe we will be lucky and there will still be some opportunities for snow photos too.snowzilla
