Looks like Taxidermy, Don. Field Museum, perhaps?
Nah, Cabela's in Hoffman Estates, IL.
Good eye ... the subject is dead. It was a different kind of photography, for sure. Kind of like having the "TIME STOP" function. LOL :D ;)
This one was even weirder ...
I have noted that the "animals" lack a natural-looking "moistness" about them. Also, the lack of respiration is a bit "stuffy."
Ryan some nice shots, although a few of them look a little squirrely to me! Don't look that one felllow in the eye to long or he will steal your nu....er um soul! And Don you have been working on the prototype of that stop time feature again I see!
Here is one from the local zoo. It is a small zoo and all the animals are in fenced in areas and it is hard to get any good shots without shooting through a fence. The bear cage had a moat around it so there was no fence.
That's a nice shot, not over processed and composed well. (Maybe would've taken a hair off the top to make give it equal room on top and bottom).
Did you try and portrait oriented shots?
The flowers have finely sprung.
