I took a trip to Denmark recently. Only brought the 24-70. We went to a zoo there and I was absolutely blown away by the place. It was a Safari park type zoo with large animal enclosures and gave a real feeling that you were out on the savanna.

Hope you enjoy the shots. And, if you ever find yourself in Denmark, Go to the Givskud Zoo, it is definitely worth the visit.

The lion photos were taken through a closed, dirty car window. They seem a bit soft. Probably from the glass and the glare, but I'm wondering if the camera autofocus system was having difficulty focusing on animal fur. It is a contrast based autofocus.....and I guess there isn't much contrast in lion fur. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

C&C welcome, as always.

Thanks,

Desi
