Arctic Foxes before summer graying.
Today I made my first trip to the zoo since last autumn, also my first since my surgery 2 1/2 months ago. I walked slow and watched each animal longer. I was able to catch some animals in poses I hadn't seen before. It felt good to be outside and walking without pain.
Snow leopard resting on rocks.
I was able to take a photo through the glass as the window had recently been washed on the inside and the lighting was such that there was no reflection. This young cub almost appears to be smiling.
Just goose-stepping or a forced march?
Though not officially residents of the Denver zoo, many geese now either stay over the winter or return before mating season. The green collar indicates that this goose is part of a migration study to see whether it stayed or returned.
Peacock in a tail wind.
This was one frustrated peacock. This day we had a very strong wind. The pea hen he was posturing for was over in my direction as I took the photo and everytime he turned to strut for her, the wind turned him around. Finally the pea hen walked away and he folded his feathers and did the same.
