Caption: The keeper was up on the public viewing area getting ready to throw in some pizza boxes we had just emptied at a going away party. I was on the ground right in front of their enclosure and Kunali was about 4' or less away from me. He stood there looking like.......!well throw the damn box'!

Thank you everyone.

This was one of those shots that I only had a minute or 2 to capture.

For those of you think this is my job, it isn't. I am merely a vol. at the Alaska Zoo and as such it gives me some great access to these wonderful animals.

He looks like my dogs when we finish dinner and are about to set the plates on the floor for them to lick. Great shot, very expressive face! Congratulations on your AC!

About johngomes

johngomes

I retired as a police officer/crash rescue firefighter in April of 1990. I have enjoyed photography since the mid 70's and crossed over to the digital world in 1996. Along with being the volunteer photographer for the Alaska Zoo the main focus of my photography is to show Alaska as it passes in front of my lens on a day to day basis. While viewing my albums be sure to look for lnks to Britt Coon's Smug Mug albums. She is becoming a great photographer in her own right and it has been fun watching her develop her skills for the last couple of years that we have worked together. To view more of her work click here and visit her SmugMug album.
