An unexpected snow storm at the Portland Oregon Zoo had everyone smiling. Some were calling home, elated, sharing their experience with family and friends. Overjoyed voices exclaiming “It’s SNOWING” could be heard all around. I took the opportunity to capture the reaction from one inanimate object nearby.  I think he enjoyed catching snowflakes on his tongue as much as I did.  It was wonderful to see such a high level of snow enthusiasm.

Nearly full moon – 1am July 2nd 2012. Over the course of 5-10 minutes, strange clouds moved in then quickly departed.

Clouds have passed….

Clouds have passed....

…leaving a crystal clear view of the moon.
