My timing was excellent this week. Not only did spring finally arrive in New York City, but I was able to return to work after 10 weeks of shoulder recovery and physical therapy (ouch). The animals, the welcoming staff, the spring flowers and blossoming trees were music to my ears and subjects to be photographed. Enjoy this week’s photos.

Before this week’s 50 degree surge in temperatures we enjoyed some more snowy fun at the Central Park Zoo. There is one more photo series (called Valentine Tails) which will be held on Sun, Feb 11, 2018 8:30AM – 10:00AM. There are a few spaces left. Think hearts and fun.

Most of us experienced bone chilling temperatures this week along with Thursday’s bomb cyclone snowstorm. The option of staying home eluded me and off I went to my home base, the Central Park Zoo. It was frigid, it was windy, it hurt – but worth it to watch the animals whose first names are ‘snow’ enjoy the storm. The top eight rows of photos depict our snow leopards and snow monkeys and were taken Thursday and the bottom five rows of photos are vintage 2014 pics. Special note to Central Park Zoo fans – the top photo is of our new male snow leopard named Kumush. If you are stuck inside in this frozen tundra of weather why not visit my youtube site. I haven’t uploaded a video in a very long time but there are 10 years of videos for you to enjoy. I am closing in on a million views.

We had three days of snow in NYC this week. I am lucky. I do not have to shovel or drive in the snow. I am a mass transit kind of gal. I get to reap the rewards of freshly fallen snow photographing beautiful animals enjoying it as much as I do. That said, I salute the zookeepers, managers and maintenance department for working so hard to get our zoo open at 10AM so that the public can enjoy a  beautiful, safe space.

My good friend and zoocation buddy Mary Schwalm has created another sensational 2018 Calendar. They are $10 each and are great for the office party and gift exchanges. CD sized calendar are perfect for a desk. Send an email at maryschwalm@gmail.com and get your order shipping by Monday. I got mine in the mail and love them. (See example below today’s photo montage).

Winter gave us one last gasp of cold, wind and snow this week. The animals at the Central Park Zoo did not mind at all. Come visit before it all melts away.

6389snoqAll WCS zoos were closed on February 9th during the snowstorm. I was at the zoo bright and early the next day to catch our amazing collection as they emerged from their holding areas to see the freshly fallen snow. What fun.cpzsnow2-2017

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
