    nicely done, very crisp and well framed. looks like you go to the zoo quite often :)
    all done with the 105mm sigma? or did you use another lens? (asking cause i just ordered that same sigma)

    Good shooting, Daan! All of the ringtailed lemur shots are wonderful captures, the sipping monkey is an out-of-the-ordinary pose, and the dof and detail in the last one make for a nice primate portrait.

    thanks. Yeah, it was a shame but thats just the way it is. Cant win em all ;)
    Nope, these were shot with the Sigma 70-300. Good lens if you consider the price. But thats with all the Sigma's. The 105macro is really sharp though.
    The holidays are over now and so is summer, so it isnt that busy in the zoo's anymore. Good time to visit them now. You still got daylight pretty long too
    Thanks for the reply :D
    Thank you for your comment :) There were a couple of monkeys sipping and they all went one after the other. So i had some chances to get a shot. Was a shame that the water was dirty though, could have had a nice reflection if that water was clean.
    yes here i am. Winter is coming so the bugs are hiding now. Have to visit the zoo's now to find some animals to shoot. But thats a thing i dont mind doing :mrgreen:
    Thanks for the reply :)

    cheers :)
    They are quite the models. In this zoo you can walk around in their enclosure. So no fences and stuff. And alot of the times they come to you to see of you got something too eat (no, i dont feed them)
