Dancing lorikeet

Inside the Lorikeet exhibit at the San Antonio Zoo, there must be a hundred of these colorful guys and gals flying around.  It's kinda weird.  They land on your shoulders and you can buy nectar to feed them.  This guy seemed to know I was taking photos of him, because he looked at me a few times, then started dancing from one foot to the next.  Maybe he was just hyper from all the nectar!

Sleepy bear

Recently we went to the San Antonio Zoo down in San Antonio, TX.  It's really a nice zoo and a good way to spend the day.  This grizzly bear was one of the first animals that we saw.  When we first arrived, he was in his pool taking a dip, and was pretty hard to see.  I could just barely catch the top of his head bobbing around, which just wasn't going to work as far as photography goes.  We kept walking and due to some good luck had to double back by his enclosure.  When we did, he was lumbering about, slowly making his way around the area and he finally settled down right in front for a nap.  I was pretty jazzed and had the camera working full speed.  

This is a single exposure, taken at f/6.3 and 0 ev.  I did some adjustments in PSE around Contrast and a little color fix in Aperture and that's it!

The back entry to the Central Park Zoo

I like NYC, it's a really cool place.  I walked through Central Park, and though the exhibits at the Central Park Zoo were closed you could still walk through it.  After cruising around there for a bit, I ended up at the back side and found this nice little bridge with this cool orange light.  I liked the arch of the bridge, the stonework, the lighting, and the idea that there is something interesting just around the corner...
