Welcome to...

The Animal Place


Providence, Rhode Island

Featured here are some of my favorite animals taken at RWP.

You do not have to go far to find interesting subjects.

I hope you like what you see and write to me at the address below.

Prairie Dogs

These two prairie dogs are in a compound with many more relatives. I have many photos of these little creatures, but I always have to "take one more". The place where the critters are placed is in full sun and seems to be always well lit. I generally use a 100-300mm zoom for photographing their antics.

Snow Leopard

    Snow Leopard @ RWP


The Snow Leopards are spectacular. The leopards blend in to their surroundings so well that they are hard to spot when they are at rest. I believe there are four leopards in the exhibit.


Cheetah on a Stroll

The Cheetah exhibit is also outstanding. The RW Zoo has two beautiful animals, that are there for us to enjoy. The animals appear to have enough room to roam and do not look stressed.

All the photos on this page were taken on 200 speed print film, and shot with 100-300mm zooms.
