Jaguar - San Diego Zoo

Here are a few recent pictures of Valerio, the young male Jaguar at the San Diego Zoo.


Connor the Tiger - San Diego Zoo

I was able to spend a few hours last Saturday with Connor, the older Malayan Tiger at the San Diego Zoo.  Here are few images.

Connor will celebrate his sixth birthday on Sunday, April 2.  If you happen to be at the San Diego Zoo, stop by and wish him a happy birthday.

Balboa Park San Diego - Late Afternoon Sunlight

I went for a short walk around Balboa Park (San Diego) the other night, just as the sun was setting.

Looking down one of the long porticos I spotted a gymnast or acrobat doing a handstand on a fairly narrow wrought iron railing, while a photographer got some pictures of her lit by the setting sun.

1955 Ford Thunderbird - Balboa Park

I was wandering around Balboa Park in San Diego in the early evening a few weeks ago and came across this - a 1955 Ford Thunderbird parked in front of one of the museums. There was a 1950's themed fund raiser going on for one of the local schools.

Balboa Park San Diego - Tourists Enjoying the Evening

I was walking around Balboa Park in the early evening a few weeks ago, just after it stopped raining.


San Diego Zoo Safari Park

I spent a few hours last month at the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park in Escondido, California.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the day, and there are some tigers in the previous post.


Tiger Trail - San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Here are a few images from the Tiger Trail at the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park last month.  These are young Sumatran Tiger cubs.


Nap Time With The Lion

I walked by the African Lions at the San Diego Zoo about a month ago . . . but they were napping.  I think they do that a lot.

Street Performers - Balboa Park San Diego

I found these street performers under one of the arcades in Balboa Park this evening, just a few minutes before sunset.  The low but very bright sunlight lit them up like a spotlight in the otherwise very dark area.  I don't know how to describe their music or their act, other than that it is quite distinctive.
