A Favorite

This is another favorite of mine. This hippopotamus was taken at the Philadelphia Zoo, PA, she was having a good day as I believe she was smiling. This particular image has sold a lot on other websites and won a few awards.

My Photo Of The Day..Lion

The lion, what is there to say, just a stunning big cat. This particular one was taken a while ago at the Washington Zoo. I have won a few awards with this capture. Betterphoto did a cash contest a few years back and this won me $500.

Although the Leopard is my favorite big cat, the Lion comes a sweet third in my eyes. I hope you like my pick for this month....

My Photo Of The Day The Douc

My Photo Of The Day The Douc

My photo of the day is an old one but a good one and my top seller on other websites. :) The "Red Shanked Douc Langur" is far my favorite primate of all.

CRITICALLY ENDANGERED! During the Vietnam War millions of bombs were dropped in the Langur Douc's forest home and huge swathes were defoliated with chemicals like Agent Orange, wiping out many plants and animals. Doucs were also used for target practice by soldiers and hunted for meat by subsistence hunters. Nobody knows how many Doucs survived, but it seems likely that their numbers have been devastated over big areas. They were previously observed in groups of 60 or more, now groups are rarely larger than 12

The "Douc's" can be seen only at the Philadelphia Zoo, PA!

It was my pleasure to photograph this lovely lady until her passing last year. Her son and another are still at home in Philadelphia.
