Buttonwood Park Zoo
January 29, 2023

Information form the Zoo's website appears below.

Took the Sony A7RV out to the local Zoo to test out the animal eye and bird eye AI autofocus feature. Wow, I am stunned at how well it performed! Even shooting through glass such as this shot. Can't imagine the detail when not photographed through glass but for now, this is as close as I can dream of getting close. Many more shots from the zoo coming up later this week.

Oh, and if you ever visit Buttonwood Park Zoo, you'll see two of my prints of Molly the coyote and one of a river otter that I took a few years ago. Thrilling to see them hanging in the zoo to represent their animals.

SPECIES
Golden-headed Lion Tamarin

SCIENTIFIC NAME
Leontopithecus chrysomelas

HABITAT
Tall evergreen broadleaf tropical forests and semi-deciduous forests along the Atlantic coast from 10 to 33 feet in the canopy. They depend on tall, mature forest for its abundance of tree holes which they use as sleeping dens.

DIET
Frugivorous. They eat mostly fruits, flowers, nectar, plant exudates and occasional small invertebrates

LIFE EXPECTANCY
15 – 20 years

THREATS: Just 2-5% of the golden-headed lion tamarin’s original habitat remains in Brazil. The remaining forests are being destroyed at an unprecedented rate for the region and the surviving populations are depleted and fragmented.

COMMITTED TO CONSERVATION: The Buttonwood Park Zoo participates in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan (SSP) for Golden-headed Lion Tamarins. The goal of the SSP is to cooperatively manage animal populations within AZA accredited zoos to ensure the sustainability of a healthy and genetically diverse population while enhancing the conservation of this species in the wild.

The real house that inspired The Conjuring movie. Processed an older photo using some of Photoshop's neural AI filters along with some manual blending and all that. Not too shabby for AI in its infancy. Wish I could paint like this!

Hammond Castle

John Hays Hammond, Jr. built his medieval-style castle between the years 1926 and 1929 to serve both as his home and as a backdrop for his collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance artifacts. The castle was constructed as a wedding present for his wife Irene Fenton Hammond to prove how much he cared for her. In addition, the building housed the Hammond Research Corporation, from which Dr. Hammond produced over 400 patents and the ideas for over 800 inventions. Second only to Thomas Alva Edison in number of patents, John Hammond was one of America's premier inventors. His most important work was the development of remote control via radio waves, which earned him the title, "The Father of Remote Control."

Visitors to Hammond Castle Museum are welcome to explore the castle on a self-guided tour of many rooms (map supplied) including the great hall, indoor courtyard, Renaissance dining room, two guest bedrooms, the inventions exhibit room, the library, the War room, the kitchens, the Natalie Hays Hammond exhibit room, servants quarters, as well as several smaller rooms and passage ways including a secret passageway. We suggest that you start your tour in our AV theater where you can view a short film on the life and times of the Hammonds.

Visitors may also enjoy the beauty of the castle grounds and a view of the Atlantic shore line while strolling through our gardens or sitting on a bench taking in that view..

In addition to self-guided tours, Hammond Castle Museum offers a number of educational programs and prearranged tour opportunities for school and tour groups. Our staff is always available to discuss the Hammonds with you as well as our unique collections.
