I haven’t visited Lincoln Park Zoo as much since we moved out of the city. In 2007-2008 I probably visited once a week and some of the animals began to act differently as I would often be walking around the Zoo long before it officially opened and was sometimes there while they were being fed. I think this led some of them to become quite comfortable with me and allowed me to recognize patterns (the Polar Bears 6:30am morning swim, for example).

This is a free Zoo, in the city of Chicago, and I believe the oldest Zoo in the United States. I love it.

I’ve become so used to shooting at this zoo that it was very hard to pick just 12 photos from the two trips to the zoo I made during the year… I left out some that I like more for various reasons.

Anyway, here are 12 photos from the zoo, all shot in 2011:

Tigers - This made is into my top-12 purely on content, rather than quality!
