At the Zoo

I took this picture of a snow leopard while in Chicago. I knew it got cold there, but really... This picture turned out rather darker than I thought, but I rather like it.

There's also this wild dog I caught hanging out at the kopje. Again, it's not a straight-ahead shot, but I like the way it suggests doggishness. I'm a fan of African wild dogs ever since last winter, when I saw them piled up in a giant dogpile. I never really understood the origin of the term before then. It just looks so very cosy to see a big pack all piled together against the chill.

I also snapped a few monkey pictures that might turn into icons of one kind or another.
