    What fantastic shots! I would not have guessed these came from a zoo, very different from the zoo shots I've seen!

    Somehow this morning Chiller is taking the words right out of my mouth!

    And to have got that cheetah in its favourite way of being, i.e. running, is ever so good. But I also like that drinking wolf!

    Well, I like ALL of these.
    Must go to the zoo ... though it will be hard to capture anything as well as you did here!

    Thanks for the comments, everybody.

    Capturing the Cheetah running was one of the hardest things to do, I think that I shot about 120 photos just to get this one, good thing it was early in the morning and the cheetahs were all energetic and running and playing all over.

    The only animals that I haven't been able to get good photos of my favorites, the Sumatran Tigers, they are always sleeping.

    Sweet shots, I especially like the slow shutter on the Cheetah.

    I love the frog and the eagle!

    These two pages (this and pat one I guess) are dog-slow! What server is that?

    Anyway only those two load so I can't comment on the others. But I really dig that frog! Seriously! Heh! A blue frog... kewl!!!
