Playful polar bear at the Toledo Zoo. He carried the ball up to the top of the waterfall and then threw it down. He went splashing down after it and leaped into the pool to catch it again. I must have spent an hour watching him. Many more photos of him at the flickr site.
At the end of March, DrQuuxum and I headed out on our annual road trip. This year, we set out for Chicago with their plethora of zoos. There are FOUR AZA zoos in Chicago: Lincoln Park, Brookfield, Shedd Aquarium, and Cosley. And there’s the Field Museum with Sue. Sadly, a bout with food poisoning limited us to just Brookfield and Shedd. On the way home, we stopped at the Toledo Zoo; so we did at least make three zoos on this trip. And we were left with an excuse to return to Chicago at some point.
We’ll see how this works, I just linked my wordpress and my flickr accounts. Now I should be able to spotlight some of the photographs I’m most proud of, more than the little sidebar stream.
Here are the bald eagles at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, from my post birthday trip.
