_Central Park Zoo_

Been wanting to visit the Central Park Zoo for a couple of weeks now and finally managed to go successfully yesterday. Great day to be outside although not as sunny in the afternoon as I would have hoped for. Wanted to visit the zoo mainly to test out my Sigma 70-200 lens so all the pics here are taken with that lens except for the first few with the seals which were taken with the Sigma 24-70. The zoo is rather small but the polar bears and red pandas are adorable. Felt kinda bad for the arctic fox though cause it seemed rather unhappy.
