    These are a few from my few hours at the zoo. I went wanting to capture some shots of the baby cheetahs, but they seemed to stay hidden. Maybe next time.

    All shot in full sun, 170-500mm hand held:er:

    Yayyy, well done Chiller! Every one of those is an awesome shot (the male lion was having a bad hair day though, wasn't he?) I can't even narrow it down to a few faves. That big lens is sooooo awesome for wildlife shots, eh?

    (And I appreciate your efforts in trying to sneak around the back of the cheetah enclosure to get pics of the babies, so I could see 'em. Lawyers charge double on Sundays to bail people outta jail, just so you know :lol: ).

    Wow. These are all really really good!

    Oh, was I allowed to come look into this thread?
    You went to the zoo for Anty, took these for her. Not for me. And I still came to look :shock: :oops: :wink: !!
    But I am glad I did!!!

    ^^^ No, Corinna, he didn't take them for me. But he did promise to post some of his pics, so he kept his word. And just so you know, I always check out the numerous threads that say "for Lafoto", knowing I'll see a sea of green in them!

    Excellent shots. I shall get back to zoo as soon as my tele lens is delivered.
    Thanks for sharing, Chiller.

    PS: How much did the 170-500mm lens cost you? Can you send the details of the lens?

    Thanks for all your awesome comments.
    Ravi..the best part about this lens was that it was free. :thumbup: :thumbup: My company used 12 of my images for their calender, and bought me this lens. It is an o.k lens, not really that fast and is heavy to lug around. I will pm you the details from the store I got it at.
