This week’s photo challenge is Solitary, and Cheri Lucas says “I love capturing a person in a quiet and often unexpected moment. These kinds of images can be reflective, mysterious, or even sad, conjuring strong emotions and stirring up stories in my head.” I was thinking don’t animals also experience solitary moments, not only our pets, but those in the wild, and in the zoos. Here are a few pictures I captured recently at the Bronx Zoo in New York. It is one of the world’s largest metropolitan zoos, with over 600 species from around the world. The zoo comprises 265 acres of park lands and naturalistic habitats, through which the Bronx River flows.
The other pictures will follow soon in another post.
