    I got over to the Toronto zoo today, bright and early. Big mistake. Most of the animals were as exciting as watchin paint dry. The tigers were not even out, and the keeper said they were locked inside, cause they were "stressed" :confused: But I managed to get a few shots before the crowds got there.

    Looks like you got some great shots. I love the second one.

    When I went to the Houston Zoo a staff member was monitoring the behavior of one of the tigers. Apparently he has a nervous pacing habit. Who knew that tigers were so easy to stress out!

    man chiller, you can take the best zoo picks...when i go, i dont see anything this cool...you just are at the right place at the right time...love the butterfly shot... its great...the detail of the wings are just great...but the polar bear shot is really excellent...

    had to laugh over the giraff....but you can see her eyelashes..and a hole in her ear...possibly for jewelery??? ( ^^ is wonky good?? that must be a canadian phrase, right??)

    good job....your skill is unbelievable.....i can only hope to get to your level....

    Ah well, we have several brilliant (Canadian) zoo photographers on this board. But you, Chiller, certainly are among them.

    Yes, the thoughtful face of the Orang Utan does make you think what he might be thinking, right? No wonder the Indonesian people called him "Man from the Woods".

    The butterfly photo has the loveliest colours.
    I happened to be in the zoo yesterday at last, yay!, (WITH all the crowds, mind, but the tiger was out [!], only behind glass - bummer! :(...) and now know how hard it is to get a good butterfly photo. Dang! Most of mine were blurred...

    Polar bears there were none... but girafs. I managed to get one nice one of those, too, but none as funny as yours ;).

    Yes, now that you have put up your zoo pics, I might think about putting up some of mine, too, once I have scraped together the courage I need to do so. ;)

    I just love the first Chiller! So sharp and the composition is great! The last is definitely hilarious too! What do they put in the water at that zoo? :lol:
