Big Grin My NYC photos

As some of you know, I'm in New York right now. I'm here for a total of 3½ weeks, and since I just love to take photos, i thought I would share some of my NYC photos with you.

Yesterday it was our anniversary (5 years since we met and 2 years married) and it is our tradition that we go to a zoo on that day. This year we went to the Bronx Zoo!
It's a huge zoo, and most of the animals have excellent "homes". I was very impressed with what they have made for the gorillas. We walked around for a bit over 4½ hours, and I took a total of 150 photos. I have uploaded 33 of the best to my flickr account. If you want to see them click here:

The polar bear was one of the few animals that didn't have a nice exhibit. But of course with polar bears, it would be impossible to give them the amount of space that a wild polar bear has.

I've put some of the pictures that I took at The American museum of Natural History yesterday up on the internet. Most of them aren't sharp, and unfortunately it wasn't allowed to take pictures at the Darwin exhibition.

You'll find the pictures here:
