October 20


I found this Snow Leopard in a thoughtful pose this morning.
I find that 95% of the good shots I get at the Zoo are taken either before it is open to the public, or the first hour it opens.
This morning I left the Zoo 90 minutes after it opened.

Most animals are more active in the early morning and late evening. I'm sure the crowds don't help things. I love his thoughtful pose. V

He's contemplating the day ahead, with all those faces poking in at wonder they hide from the public as much as they can...I think I would too....
