    From my recent trip to the zoo! It was also the first time I got to use my 400mm sigma seriously.

    I hope you like them! More pics here, on my new gallery that will eventually grow. P.S. please excuse the weird borders, it's so it looks okay on my gallery.

    You were quite clearly being spotted by some of them! :shock: No candid camera for the tigers, meerkats and chimpanzee! :D

    Very good use of the 400mm lens! Good and sharp photos of animals that really pull faces for you! Wow.

    Thanks guys! I thought it was kind of cool that the animals were staring at me. It's like they have personalities.

    Haha I like that last one, it looks like he should have a cigarette in his mouth. Photoshop anyone? ;)
    Those monkeys can make some crazy expressions, check out a thread a while back when I visited the San Diego zoo.

    I love #1, I wish #2 was in color, #5 is probably the best gorilla shot I have seen in a long time! Nice job, thanks for sharing!

    Awesome shots, especially love the gorilla and chimp. The chimp looks REALLY old, wonder just how old it is?

    Long Beach. Thanks for the comment. :biggrin:
    Thanks Spidy! #2 in color was kinda.. bleh. Besides, I think B&W is more artistic. I appreciate your compliments on #1 & 5! :mrgreen:

    Cool shots! Number 6 is my favorite, just wish it had a bit more in terms of DOF but still ... the expression and pose is excellent. Very nicely done.:thumbup:

    The eye contact between you and your subjects is different and quite good. Even the flamingo seems to be keeping an eye on you. Good job.
