Grin and Bear It……

I’m almost home for a few days of much needed off time, its been almost 2 months on the road and I’m starting to go batty. Next Monday I’m planning a trip to Cades Cove national park for a day with hopefully Smokey the Bear(s). If they are not out yet there are still the wild turkeys and loads of deer to photograph not to mention the fantastic scenery. I can’t wait!
These pics are from my last visit a few years back when I finally hit the jackpot for bear pics, I saw at least 5 on that day.




3 Days at the Zoo

Last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I enjoyed the zoo in Columbus Ohio, my home away from home. Sunday was a beautiful day and the Lions were out and snoozing in the sun. The pride consisted of a male, 2 females and 5 cubs which were too cute for words. Over the next week I’m doing pics from this visit.

First are the Lions from Sunday.




Black and White Tuesday at the Zoo

I spent yesterday at the Brown County New Zoo in Suamico Wisconsin, about 10 miles north of Green Bay. While not a major zoo like Columbus it is a very nice zoo with lots of animals indigenous to Wisconsin and the upper midwest.
