    For months I have said on here that after I had seen all your brilliant zoo photos I needed to go to the zoo myself any time soon. Of course, I was thinking of bringing my SLR and the 70-300mm lens. But the SLR is broken... :( Therefore all I could bring was my compact digital camera, the one that my son deprecatingly called "your tourist's snapper" :(.

    I felt soooo reduced!

    The weather was not always on our side, either, so my photos of elephants are nowhere near as nice as Raymond's were:

    Can you see the cute little baby between its mother's and aunts' legs?

    Here's a crop of the same, just for you to see a little better. (There are no words to tell you how much I missed my telephoto lens!!!)

    The animals in the zoo in Emmen have got large areas to themselves, so you cannot always be sure you get to see them close-up (least of all if all you bring is a "tourist's snapper" - cough-cough :roll: ).

    But do you see those tiny non-elephant creatures among them? These here (crop):

    Actually they were all over the place but would you think I could catch them close-up? Never. Grrr ;)

    If you want, I can send more. We did not only and exclusively see elephants.

    I did all the post processing work to them that I can with my limited software.

    Oh wow, thanks aprilraven, but after I have seen your photo of the fox in your backyard I am just CONVINCED you would present us only the best of zoo photos!!!

    What I like most about the first photo is the pouring rain... ;) It becomes quite visible - and boy, it WAS pouring!

    Seems as quite a few of us hat a zoo weekend... Great shots! The elephants in #1 also seem to dislike the rain, one can almost feel the bad weather in that image.

    And you caught a ... medium sized black bird .... I didn't dare to ... even though they seem to like zoos. There were lots of them around when I went to the zoo on sunday.
