An Amazing Sight…

I went to the National Zoo, part of the Smithsonian, the other day with my photo buddies DK and Rose. It was the first really nice day in DC so many folks were at the Zoo. The National Zoo is amazing in itself for all of its research and conservation. Most of you know by now that a baby Giant Panda was born and is seven months old. We saw Bao Bao.Bao Bao in B&W But what many outside of the region do not know is that the Zoo is part of Rock Creek Park. Besides the zoo animals, on any given day, you can see deer, hawks, black squirrels, and other wildlife. Sometimes the frogs in the ponds are interlopers, native to the region but not really zoo animals.

This is what the founders intended, and when we visited last week, I got a glimpse at why this zoo is exceptional. Below is a series of photos taken high above the American Trail of two Red Shouldered Hawks mating. Those who photograph wildlife, live for shots like these. And while I pushed my lens to the max, I think you get the picture!

Enjoy this series of photos. It is a rare sight!
