Mother and child Gorillas at the Congo exhibit. The enclosures at The Bronx Zoo, New York get two thumbs up for being spacious, well appointed and naturalistic. We loved the day out and left vowing to return. C.Paxton image. Sigma SD1 with 70-300 mm zoom.

Wildopeneye (New York) It’s been a while since I visited a megacity and I’d forgotten how the noise and business of a bustling megapolis can seemingly vanish in the welcoming fresh shady paths of a good zoological garden. The Bronx Zoo is a fabulous day out and excellent venue for wildlife photography.
