The above photos (unedited) were taken on our annual winter holiday zoo adventure. Milwaukee County Zoo is a family favorite. (Click images to enlarge.)
Between and among adventures, we had time to catch up on Colony (and discuss the apparent Lost parallels, including Snyder = Ben and “Not everything is as it may seem”), finish a few books (Shylock Is My Name is well worth the effort), and plan a few more excursions — although not for over the holiday. By design, our three-day respite will not take us further from home than half the distance of our longest bike ride.
What have you planned for the long weekend?
Early this year, I accompanied my daughter on a visit to the Milwaukee County Zoo for a series of primate behavior observations. While she made copious notes and narrated what she was seeing and how it dovetailed what she was learning in her anthropology course, I took image after image, many of which she used as references for illustrations she made to complement her field notes. Since that rather magical day, I look at primates much, much differently. I think I have begun to see them.
The above images were taken on December 11 at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
