Correction to end of year competition,  First place class B COLOR PRINT Arnie Spielman "tobay birds"


      Queens Zoo in Flushing Meadow Park

     Join us December 17 at one of my favorite haunts, the Queens Zoo.  Here you will be able to photograph an array of animals from the Americas - big burly bison, pudus (the tiniest of deer), Chacoan peccaries, thought to be extinct until a herd was found in Brazil in 1975.  Other stunning animals you will meet up close are coyotes, Canadian lynx, pumas, Andean bears, bald eagles, sea lions, Roosevelt elk, parrots, burrowing owls and sand hill cranes.

     In addition you can walk through the Aviary, a geodesic dome - a remnant of the 1964 World's Fair.  On to the farm.  Among the animals you will see here are giant Flemish rabbits, topping 20 lbs., Texas longhorns, whose horns span 6 ft., and "Oreo cookie cows" (belted Galloways), whose coloration make you crave cookies and milk.

     If that isn't enough before we leave Flushing Meadow Park we'll stop at the "Unisphere" and the nearby NY State pavilion.  We will be meeting at the entrance to the zoo at 10:00 a.m.  Parking is free.  Admission is $6 seniors /$8 adults.
