Party with the Snow Leopards

I try to make it to the Bronx Zoo once a year. There is always something different to see since you can never predict what the animals are going to (or not going to) do. Over the years, there are some things you just come to expect – not seeing the tiger on the monorail, seeing a polar bear that never moves, eating lunch with a peafowl 2 feet away scared out of your mind it’s going to attack you for your food. A typical moment is barely seeing the snow leopards. In all the past trips I have made, they are either hiding in the back waiting for food, or asleep against the glass. This trip was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. They were both up and about running around and striking poses. So I took a ton of shots. Here is just a small sample of the bunch I took.

I just need to yawn. It's too early for a nap.
