    Aren't meerkats the cutest? They always and invariably make me go "Awww!" :D

    That elephant photo against the sun is really nice.
    But I also quite like the light in the one of the lion!
    And that tiger seems to have had a moment of utter content, rolling around in the sun :D.

    These are all excellent shots, but I must say that I love the tiger the most.

    Tigers are such gorgeous animals. It's unfortunate that that's part of the reason they're endangered. There's a small wild animal park out near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, that has a white Bengal tiger and a golden tabby Bengal tiger, which looks like this: http://www.dinner-zirkus.de/images/premiere/Dinner_Zirkus_101.JPG

    I can't wait to get pictures of them.
    :)

    Technically I think the lion shot is the best. But I'm really liking the photo of the elephant! I haven't been to taronga zoo for about 3 years now. I must go back with my new canon rig and try to get some shots!
    You have inspired me!!!
    Well done quad_b!

    thanks,
    our problem was that we only got to the zoo at about 1pm, so we had to run around madly to see everything before the zoo shut. Even then we were still there half an hour after everyone left. I want to go back in the morning so I can see everything with enough time.

    thanks everyone for the comments.
