2012 Halloween Walk With the Animals

A young participant in the KDFWR Salato Center Halloween Walk With the Animals rides a quail chich which is part of the exhibits at the Salato Center. This Halloween event is a fundraiser for the education center and is attended by more than 1,000 children every year. The kids and their parents braved cool temperatures and dar skys to participate.

The Halloween Walk With the Animals is an annual event in Frankfort which is used as a fundraiser for the Salato Education Center.  The center hosts tens of thousands of children each year and is a fantastic place to learn about Kentucky’s wildlife.  I have volunteered for the last couple years to take candid shots of the kids at the Walk.  The kids in general LOVE to have their pictures made.  These are a few of the pictures.  For a complete set of pictures, you can go to the Salato Center SmugMug page.  Purchase of these pictures support the Salato Center!

This young lady always has some of the greatest costumes! This year she was Marie Antoinette riding on a wagon complete with guiillotine. Last year she was Laura Ingles Wilder on Covered Wagon. The year before that...a peacock. Poor thing...she was freezing and wrapped tightly in the blanket. Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VRII.
