    Nature? Well, I guess so. I couldn't decide which forum to post these.......

    Yesterday I turned 50 -- ouch. I talked my husband and daughter into a trip to the zoo so I could practice taking pictures! Yes, it was nearly 100 degrees, but it was a FUN day.......About 400 pictures were taken........fortunately for you I'm only posting a few!!

    1. The Giraffe -- my personal favorite animal at the zoo!

    5. This is a capybara. He yawned just as I was taking the picture -- My, what BIG teeth he has!!

    I envy you your giraffe photos! Last I was in the zoo (my present to my husband's 51st birthday), I never exposed really right on the giraffes, the setting sun was playing tricks on me and the surroundings, and not even readjustment in the RawShooter-programme could help things get any better. So there. I envy you your giraffe photos!

    And tigers ... yes. Well. They pace. And pace. And pace and pace. :D

    Thanks so much for your nice comments. It was quite shadowy with the sun so bright, so I had to move around a lot to try to get the shadows to not be so predominant in the pictures -- sometimes I was successful, sometimes not -- I guess that's the way photography goes sometimes!

    Anyway, thanks again.

    I agree with Hoppy, the last looks kind of 3D, as if it's pulling you in..

    Great series.. Thanks.
