    Even though the title should have been enough of a clue, please supply us with an Awwwww factor warning in the future. Thanks.

    Love #1.

    That first one makes me laugh...looks like a 'pile on' in football or something! And the next two are lovely portraits of the cute critters.



    (What, they had no penguinses?)

    Cheers. Added warning but wouldn;t let me add it to the title. ;)

    Thanks, no they don't, unless there is a corner I missed. Being an NZ zoo, I'll have to get some Hobbitses pics next time.

    All three of them are way too cute. That first one, the eye contact from the squished meercat, is priceless :)

    Another great series! I may have to force myself to make another screensaver!:lol:;)
    BTW, what lens are these taken with, were you close or did you use a telephoto?

    He/she shows the focal length of each shot underneath the photo (photo28). One thing i may suggest is kicking down the ISO a bit. Judging by your focal lengths and shutter speeds you could have totally afforded the slower film speed.

    warning needs to be bigger ;)
    Great series of shots there - definatly winning the cute award!

    However I agree wtih Do that you could use a lower ISO - not sure what camera you as using, but I think ISO 400 is a decent max that you want to limit yourself to during the day.

    I agree about lowering the ISO.
    This was taken with film?

    First up, thanks for all the responces!

    Haha I agree about the ISO too, the one at 800 I forgot to lower from some low-light shooting (Sunbears area was a little dark), then at 400 I was being a bit paranoid about shutter speeds. ISO is one thing I keep forgetting to change lol

    Camera is a Canon 20D with a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8

    Dmitri - The eye contact is what makes the shot for me too!
