    Fun at the local Zoo

    We just had a early spring snow, ~10-16 inches (25-40 cm). Luckily the day before was beautiful and I had a chance to spend some time at our zoo, such is our crazy weather.

    Trumpter Swans -- they were being fed and decided to display for the guy doing the feeding. When he wasn't interested or impressed (these are very large birds), they started dancing with each other.

    Nice shots Bryan. Call me sentimental but I'm a sucker for the swans. Save it for next Valentine's day and maybe you can win a new camera like Bobo did with his similar shot here: I am a finalist...

    I also like the pensive look and lighting in your shot of the spider monkey.
