are you ready? let's go!

And so to those photos from our Central Park Zoo outing
 are you ready?
  Here we go!

We walked 
to the zoo 
from our apartment 
on Riverside Drive 
testing 
ToonMan's sense of direction  
Its weird 
but 
even 
those 
with a good sense of direction 
can get lost 
turned around 
inside 
Central Park 

The Zoo's
entrance 
is on 
Fifth Avenue between 62-63rd Streets

Walking through the park 
there was 
lot 
of 
music 

 the bubble man was entertaining


gazebos 
were there 
for those 
who would climb 
rocks to get to them


when we got to the Zoo
the first stop
was
the Tropic Zone
man
its 
hot
in there


birds of all color
and
sizes
fly free 
and
perch
everywhere


it was 
so hot 
(how hot was it?)
so hot
these turtles were trying to climb up to where it might be cooler


We left the Tropic Zone 
heading over to 
Temperate Territory
where
 this red panda thought 
if he took a bath he'd feel better


he reminded us of our orange tabby Jack

then we went to see the
sea lions
they were 
frolicking 
racing 
around 
their pool 
taking a good photo 
required the training 
I had got at Lunar Park's Scream Zone:
pick a spot 
and 
aim 
wait for your subject 
to enter the frame 
and 
keep 
snapping!

  1. Great captures...
    inspires me to dust off my camera
    and get back to the wildlife photos.

  4. i so enjoy zoos, at least ones where the animals are well-kept...do you know that the world's oldest American alligator lives in Belgrade's zoo? He's 73. I am going to go there soon.

    And I love to go on walks with you, albeit in cyberspace.

  11. You know I'm going there. How do you know dem turtles weren't getting their freak on to cool off? I heard sex cools ya down. LMAO!! I love pandas - which aren't bears. The red pandas are one of fave animals and are often overlooked for their black & white cousins. Have a healthy and safe weekend. Cheers!!

  15. Love the panda and BIG bubble!

    Kids in Walmart the other day were throwing huge balls...totally out of control. I couldn't get by and the Mom was nowhere to be found. Gah.

    I thought of you & Toonman!
