I cannot find any other word but the all comprising
All sooooo good! I am ever so impressed.
And you lucky one to have the zoo near enough to own a season ticket!
With Hagenbeck's im Hamburg being some 80 kms away ... I go there RARELY (almost never). Last I was there was when I invited my husband to their "Romantic Night" (little groups of musicians scattered all over the place, playing classical music as of 7 p.m. - and it all ended with some big fireworks at 10:30 - quite nice). But my photos ............... best stay in the shoe box
Thanks so much everyone. Appreciate your kind words.
Corinna. The zoo here is a 5 or so minute car drive. It is so amazing to just flash a card and walk in. If none of the animals are out, I just go back the next weekend. Most of the big cats are always out, and are my faves.
Jaime...thank you so much for your kind words. I shot these with the Canon XTI, with a Sigma 170-500mm lens. I do not take my tripod, but put my glove on the fence and rest the barrel of the camera on there. Since the sun is really low in the winter, these were taken around 11am.
Thanks again everyone.
N'color....These were close to the 500mm, but I have found that at the long end of the lens, it can be a little soft. Ya really gotta stablize it, and try to use a faster shutter speed. So far it seems to work. I shot a car race with the same lens. Not as crisp as I would have like, but it did ok. One day...when I have some $$$, I will get some better glass. :thumbup:
