Some of our elephants are sporting new gadgets on their ankles. Animal care staff have trained the elephants to wear these GPS tracking devices for short periods of time to help us better understand their daily activity.

Wikipedia Description: Elephant House - Home to the zoo's Asian Elephant family, as well as a single Nile hippopotamus, pygmy hippopotamus, and capybara. The zoo's pygmy hippos are descended from a famous pygmy hippo named Billy, who was a pet of president Calvin Coolidge. Rhinoceros and Giraffe were once kept in this building, but the zoo moved them to another zoo to make room for its baby male Asian elephant, Kandula. On June 22, 2006, the zoo announced plans for a new $60 million state-of-the-art Asian elephant exhibit, called "Elephant Trails."

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

2021 photos: This year, which started with former child president's attempted coup and the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, gradually got better.
Trips this year:
(May, October) After getting fully vaccinated, I made two trips down to Asheville, NC to visit my dad and his wife Dixie, and
(mid-July) I made a quick trip up to Stockbridge, MA to see the Norman Rockwell Museum again as well as Daniel Chester French's place @ Chesterwood.
Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Number of photos taken this year: about 283,000, up slightly from 2020 levels but still really low.
