    I agree with Jeff G, you have really captured their expressions wonderfully. Especially like the first one.

    Cracking shots, I wouldn't have known that was in a zoo if you'd not said. Well done!

    I really love #3. I used to go to the OKC zoo a few times per year when I lived there. Thanks for the memory jog!

    Thanks Jeff
    Thank you...it was my first time to this zoo and I was impressed with the layout of this outdoor exhibit.
    Thanks Peeb...I used the Nikon 500 VR for these.
    Thanks...I tried my best to control the backgrounds to avoid any indication that the photos were captured at the zoo.
    Thank you
    Thanks Dean...#3 is one of my favorites from the photo shoot. It was one of the more challenging exposures because of the backlighting. But, I think it is the most effective picture that I captured in showing the power of these animals. I enjoyed my time at the OKC Zoo.
