Watching the Backyard Birds

I was playing around with some new black & white settings on my Fuji X100T the other day when I spotted Aldo keeping an eye on the birds in the backyard.


It is October After All

October is a fun time of year at the San Diego Zoo.

Here's Cinta, one of the Malayan Tigers. He can tell that something is about to happen.

What is about to happen is that a couple of rather large pumpkins are about to get tossed into his pond.  They landed with quite a splash in the deep end, followed by a couple of tigers making even bigger splashes as they jumped in to retrieve them.  They had no trouble swimming in deep water holding those pumpkins in their mouths.

Here's Berani with his catch.

New Malayan Tiger Pictures - San Diego Zoo

Here are a few new pictures from today of Cinta, one of the Malayan Tigers at the San Diego Zoo.

Balboa Park and the San Diego Museum of Art

One of the first things I do when I get a new camera is head down to Balboa Park, and if it's a camera I plan to use for travel photos, one of my first stops will be the San Diego Museum of Art, so that I can see how it does in a dimly lit museum.

They've re-done a few of the upstairs galleries recently, and they turned out really nice.

There is always something interesting to see in Balboa Park.

Saturday Morning With Connor The Tiger

I got to spend a few hours last Saturday morning with Connor, one of the Malayan Tigers at the San Diego Zoo.  The light there is particularly nice this time of year.

Swimming Cats

Here's something you probably don't want to come face to face with next time you're out for a swim in the jungle.

That's the young male Jaguar at the San Diego Zoo.  His pond is deep enough that he can swim without touching the bottom once he gets a little further out from the shore.

Speaking of swimming cats, here's Cinta the Malayan Tiger going into his pond for an afternoon swim.

The water is quite a few feet deep at this point.  He's a pretty strong swimmer.
