    We're going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo...

    Hey chaps,

    Took a trip out to Chester Zoo (UK) on Sunday and managed to fill my 1gb memory card with 320 pics!

    Here's a few I felt I'd like to share. No PP, just 'C' info added and re-sized.









    More to come!..

    Amazing pics! Composition is perfect - the animals seem to be acting very naturally and in their environment.

    Very nice photos, this gives me something to strive for when I visit the Philly zoo on Thursday.

    Cheers for your comments guys.

    The Aquarium pics turned out way better than I was expecting. They are iso-1600 1/60 sec. f/4. hand held. I love the colours on those.

    This little one is at Monkey world - part of our recent Camping Holiday break.
    Had to root back to find a thread to pop it in.

    Nice shot of a ringed-tailed lemur, what is it looking at?

    I was also at the SF Zoo last week. A lot of shots were missed because of my camera's limitations in range. I'll repost my stuff since it got missed last week.

    -------------------------------------------------

    This was a real toughie for me. Today's limitation was range. My camera's focal lengths span a measly 38mm-76mm, far below what's needed for decent zoo photos. I did manage to scrounge a few decent pics out of the 170 I took. But keep my camera's limitations in mind and realize that this is as close as I could get.





    This is the part I enjoyed most. I'll post up the pictures and compose a little story out of them as people do on FM. (Warning, big pics!)



    The Situation - The penguins are about to be fed.

    1) The penguins congregate in the "dining hall" and wonder what will be served for afternoon snack.
    2) It's almost feeding time, and some penguins zip in at the last minute.
    3) Looks like it's time to eat. Reminds me of the starting line for a marathon.



    4) The penguins are fed one by one. The zookeeper calls them by name and by number, and each one has a specific amount of fish and type of fish alotted.

    5) The seagulls are true opportunists and grab any fish that the penguins reject or fail to get.
