    Craziest because I had never seen one with that blue yellow and black that almost looks like an eye right between the actual eyes. I was able to get pretty close, I kept creeping forward inch by inch taking shots as I went in case he took off. In the end probably about 7-8 ft.

    I was in the middle of some lightroom restructuring when I cam across this photo from a zoo visit about 3 years ago. For some reason I didn't pay much attention to it then, But upon review, It caught my attention. The more I looked at it the more it made me think that there is something so wrong about these places. I know they serve a valuable purpose to humans, but still, when you see shots like this it just doesn't seem right.

    Bob,
    I had the same thoughts when I saw monkeys at a zoo a while ago. I did not even take pictures because it seemed so sad.
    On a second thought, I was not so sure anymore if we always interpret their facial expressions right. But I can definitely imagine that live in most of these enclosures is kind of dull for an animal of high intelligence. Not sure what makes life harder, boredom or struggle for survival.

    Edit: But the picture is great

    There are some really wonderful shots on this page ...really nice job guys! The dragonfly and flower have such amazing detail and sharpness! Bob, there is a great deal of drama captured in that zoo shot and the b&w processing enhancing it. I could see that in a documentary!

    Joel, I like this shot. It's not what some of our birding friends would call a "good shot", But I always like these kinds of shots because they show behavior and environment; something so many photographers avoid because they don't have a perfectly isolated subject and a beautiful creamy background. Don't get me wrong, I like those shots too; but, I just really like the environment and activity of the shots like your "pheasant in the bush".

    @Denise, That is a great portrait of the squirrel. Very sharp and perfectly framed.
