 The Bronx Zoo


     The Bronx Zoo is a great place to take photos.  Over 4000 animals - including many endangered and threatened species- live on its 265 acres.  The Zoo has a focus on naturalistic habitats, both indoors and out, so you can take photograph animals, including tigers, rare snow leopards, and bears in such a way that people viewing your photo won’t be able to tell it was taken at a zoo.  The Bronx Zoo is an enjoyable and exciting photographic opportunity.  Some of the exhibits we plan to visit are the aquatic birds and sea bird aviary, tiger mountain, Zoo Center, and the big bears.
   
We will be meeting February 17th at 10:00 a.m at the Southern Boulevard entrance gate.  Hope you can join us.

Looks like fun!
