    Here are a few of the photographs I managed to get from the Nashville Zoo. Would love to get some feedback on these.

    Particularly proud of shooting a 500mm lens at 1/15th of a second and getting a shot like this.

    Lots of Patience and Panning to get this shot.

    Really liked the textures in this shot.

    lvcrts: I am using the Sigma 50-500mm 4-6.3 (aka "The Bigma"). Great lens, but its a workout carrying it around for awhile. It weights about 5 pound with the tripod ring and hood.

    Formatted: That was the best shutter speed I could get without switching to ISO 1600 and getting a grainy image. I took a few at 1600, and it still was only at 1/60th or so. Just recently writing the blog. Keeps the creative juices flowing when I'm stuck indoors and can't get out to shoot.
