My friend, Karin Berglund, and I enjoy photographing zoo animals together. Karin, whom I met when I worked for LASP, volunteers for the Denver Zoo, the Wild Animal Sanctuary, and the Humane Society. She is definitely a cat lover and still shoots with film. I have included one of Karin’s snow leopard photographs. It’s amazing to me that she shot through the fence and, with her camera film speed and aprerture settings, eliminated the foreground interference.
The polar bear photo, “Ecstasy,” was selected for the 2009–2010 annual Metrosphere publication.
