    Went to Asheboro Zoo, also known as the NC Zoo.

    This guy was in the parking lot -

    Little quail, I think they came out decent considering the fence -

    American Roadrunner. This little guy ran right up to me in the glass and stared at me. Posed perfectly for me. -

    Nice pics. I liked the roadrunner best, but as you said - he liked to pose for your shots :lol:

    I LOVE your first shot of the seal! I was at the Ashboro zoo last weekend, but we only got halfway through before it starting raining cats and dogs on us. :)

    road runner is the best shot but watch out when taking these shots, try not to cut off any feet or limbs.

    I'm going there Saturday. I hope I can invade your thread and ask what lens most people use. I thought about just starting a new thread, might get more responses.

    I love the road runner shot. I'm gonna have to find him when I got. Perfect pose!!

    I'm going to have a D80, 80-200 2.8, 50 1.8, 18-135 and my SB800 flash. Take them all?

    I was just thinking the 80-200 and the 18-135

    The first sea lion shot, and the roadrunner, are my faves. As matt-l said, try not to cut off the subject's feet.
