    Post your favorite (or best) zoo pictures!



    I really liked the other post your best threads and thought it would be interesting to see everyone's perspective on zoo photos. Hopefully there will be some takers. Here is my contribution, a two headed giraffe.


    Taken with XSi, 85mm lens, 1/320 secat f2.5, iso 200.

    This one is of my sister playing with one of her mates at the zoo she works at as a zoologist. His name is Snappy Tom and he's a 4.5m Australian Saltwater Crocodile.

    I love the croc! That is an awesome shot.


    I need to keep this one going. My 3 year oldis loving the pictures.


    While not technically sound or perfectly in focus, I really like this picture. Water is a natural barrier for the monkey and this guy was hanging about 50 feet from the nearest tree trying to fish.


    Taken with XSi, f7.1, 1/400 sec, iso 320, 70-300mmISat 300mm.

    Here are a couple of my shots from the zoo:





    Taken with the Canon Xsi and the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Lens:


    [img]/cfs-file.ashx/__key/CommunityServer.Components.UserFiles/00.00.00.31.38/Dpp_5F00_0010a.jpg[/img]





    Taken with the Canon Xsi and the 'nifty 50' (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens). I was amazed that I was able to capture this shot in the ominous blue light (taken with natural light):

    What Can I say... I like Lizards.
