Playing With The Kids
I think it was Hudson (they all look alike :-) ) developed this game of diving below the viewing window and coming up right against the glass much to the delight and squeals of the kids standing there. He repeated it often enough to allow me to get some shots. I thought this one was interesting because you can see his nose is above the water line but still under water.
This one is in memory of my niece Barbara Bugal. She loved and was so proud of her Eagles!
What do you do when there is a record breaking cold snap and you have cabin fever? Going to Tropic World at Brookfield Zoo seemed like a great idea to me; however, not many others had the same idea. This young lady looked to me like she was missing the hoards of admiring fans.
It wasn't us, really!
My wife was hosting girl friends for lunch; therefore, it became the perfect opportunity to photograph the baby orang' at Brookfield. Unfortunately, the baby is on exhibit yet, but I did catch these two looking very guilty about it.
Who's Looking at Who
The puma at Lincoln mark seemed interested in what was going on but certainly not impressed.
The butterfly exhibit provides the opportunity to capture some unique images. This little beauty looked to me as if she tiptoeing through her own little bit of paradise.
Fire on Ice
I was playing with this in Photoshop to see if I could get the flower to "pop" more. Unfortunately, I'm one of those who plays with something to the point I hate it, but I'm curious do you think it "pops" more with the playing?
Rose and Friend
I must be getting old (as if I didn't know that)! I didn't even notice the little critter visiting this rose while taking it at the Botanic Garden.
Admiring the coleus in her garden
My wife spends a lot of time creating her fairy garden. It provides a great way to test my new lens.
Safe in Mother's Arm
Nora's mother still likes to hide Nora's pretty little face from me, but at least I finally got this one. If I get lucky I may even get one with the eyes open someday.
