Field Trip! A little inspiration for me and hopefully for you

I take so many photos for work, but it seems like I never get an opportunity to take them for myself! For some reason NYC cityscapes just don't do it for me. My husband finally took me to the Bronx Zoo yesterday and amongst the hordes of kids I was able to snap a few good shots. Unfortunately my memory card is mostly full of blurry monkey pics but these animals were able to stay still for long enough... Getting out and about with camera in hand gives me so much inspiration for new work. I hope these pictures will brighten your day too!

Not the pinkest flamingo in the pond, but the closest.

Endangered/rare kingfisher.

Lemur in the Madagascar exhibit.

Penguin feeding time! I think I was more excited about this than the kids in attendance.

Another lemur in the Madagascar exhibit.

Siberian tiger at Tiger Mountain. For some reason the zoo was misting in the viewing area. I had to get out of there quickly before my hair exploded.

A dwarf mongoose—one of the cutest things I've ever seen. I have a sneaking suspicion they bite, though.

Kookaburra. A very funny looking bird.

Where do you go to find inspiration?
Any recommendations in the NY area?

What type of camera do you use?

Thanks! I use a Rebel XT– it's been a great camera. I really badly want to upgrade, but can't say I have many complaints with it. The RAW feature is great for having flexibility to adjust white balance and colors afterward.
