Story
Introduction
I am an artist/photographer with a BFA from Wittenberg University.  I work in a number of different styles and mediums.  I paint, draw, photograph, knit, and sometimes make jewelry. I also deal with my three dogs, teenage son, grown daughter, wonderful boyfriend, a rabbit and some goldfish in our patio pond in addition to working full-time in an insurance related field. I also enjoy in my spare time going fishing with my boyfriend and like to travel with him too.

The best of the Amur tiger photos from Saturday's visit at the Columbus Zoo. My eyes have been a bit off lately, and I tend to not use the manual focus on my long lens sometimes as well as usual.  Just need new glasses here soon.  However, I am really pleased with this one.  She then got busy with cleaning herself so this was one of the few seconds she actually sat still while I was there.  Her sisters were sound asleep nearby.   She was the only one of the four up and awake at that time.

Dear guy in the "I Love My Crazy Girlfriend" t-shirt - If you really loved her then you would have responded a little faster when she was calling your name numerous times from across the street and needing assistance in carrying the patio table she apparently just bought off of Craiglist, and you would have then carried that nice white table instead of rolling it across the dark dirty blacktop of the street to your car.  As witnessed at lunch while walking back to the office.

Maybe the Crazy Girlfriend originally told him I Got This and he then proceeded to ignore her requests for help. Just saying, I wouldn't do it, I'd go get the table. And how Crazy is she? That might be important.

+Jamie Rich the most relaxed Wolverine in the State of Ohio. Not the best picture I shot of it, but the most relaxed of the bunch.  From the Columbus Zoo on Saturday.

This rhino at the Columbus Zoo on Saturday was pretty close to the side of its enclosure so that I could get some really good photos of it eating.  This one was my favorite as you can see the details of its eye and the texture of its skin and horns.  I thought I would edit it both in color and in the monochrome.

Okay I bought a couple of bubble blowers for my son's graduation party next week just for fun. Little did I know that bubbles still keep him totally occupied for at least an hour or two.

This is the only one of the Columbus Zoo photos from yesterday that I have processed yet.  Too many things I need to get done this Holiday weekend. I will try and get a few more done tomorrow.

A few iPhone photos from my trip to the Columbus Zoo earlier today. I haven't downloaded any of the photos from the NEX-7 yet, but did get a few really good ones. It was prefect weather which is partially why it was packed today.

One of the two Clouded Leopard babies at the Columbus Zoo photographed this past Saturday.  The other was snuggled up in his or her spot and sound asleep while this one was wide awake and in the mood to play.

I am reposting this little guy who was staring at me from behind the glass at the Columbus Zoo on Saturday.  I decided to put all the various animal photos in one place.  I will have a few more zoo photos to post in a bit.

Dummy aka Stewie fell in the fishpond a bit ago. At least he's a wash and dry dog.

Poor thing!! Lol!!

My standard longhair doxie did that last fall, except he went into a little lake. He fell off the edge of the stone wall surrounding it as there was dew in the grass and he didn't want to get his feet wet!

The gibbons were really noisy at the Columbus Zoo today. Just a brief sampling of their vocalizations.
