Franklin Park Zoo

Lily and I took a Thursday outing to the Franklin Park Zoo. A perfect opportunity for lovely butterfly shots and gigantic duck (and swan) close-ups. No species IDs necessary: these ducks are individuals. Look at the wear on their bills.

There is a Hollywood movie filming at the zoo over the next few months. A large section is fenced off, though you can see the emerging set. (A Kevin James comedy, I read).

And just this morning the Globe reports that the State is planning to cut back funding and force the zoo to close next year. Extraordinarily short-sighted.
