The Bronx Zoo…

Back in the day, a good report card from school meant a trip to Friendly’s for a Chocolate Fribble. Doing well has it’s rewards! And yesterday we took the boys to the Bronx Zoo for a year end celebration, and treat for outstanding report cards.

Of course, the camera came along and there were tons of photo opps… Spent a-lot of time in the “Congo” with the Gorillas. Not only are they really photogenic (is there an ugly Gorilla????), but their sense of humor and interactions brought huge laughs from the boys. While I was worried about reflections off the glass enclosure, turns out that its fine shooting as long as the Gorilla’s remained away from the glass… too close, and you began to get shirt reflections of people standing next to you.

If you’ve never been to the Bronx Zoo, would highly recommend it. Enjoy!

  1. Nice photos!
    It is appropriate that you spent “a lot of time in the Congo” — that is in Bronx’s Congo Gorilla Forest, one of the best zoo exhibits in America! This exhibit, along with JungleWorld, the Wild Asia monorail tour, new Madagascar building, and much more are what makes this one of the USA’s top zoos.
