Today's image is titled lion, relaxing in the sunshine and was photographed by Kelly Hafermann.
The animals populating the Henry Vilas Zoo on the south side of Madison will likely be out and about in their outdoor enclosures over the weekend, which is forecast to be warm and sunny. Given the summery conditions -- just in time for Earth Day, the spring Badger football game, and the first weekend of the Dane County Farmers' Market -- the zoo is as good of a place as any to catch some sun and some races in the Midwest Rowing Championships. More of Hafermann's photos from the zoo, twenty in all, may be found here.
