Forgot to post these earlier...

The otters were in a shaded area and to make it worse I under exposed this one quite a bit, but when I saw the leaf on the head you just had to go for it!

Image
The brown bear enclosure was also quite shaded, but lighting made worse as the sun broke through in spots so you had nothing consistent.

Long grass is long.

That's some really weird bokeh you have in the upper right corner of your last pic. It is the one I like the most tho. Overall, neat pictures :)

That's a branch in the foreground going out of focus. Couldn't be avoided where this kitty was.

I love that you captured the tiger in the center of the frame; it really emphasizes the natural symmetry of its markings.

Even the trees above, the placement of the tiger's paws, and the shape of the stone are almost perfectly symmetrical! Was all of this intentional? :wink:

I was deliberately getting right in front of the tiger, but I wasn't specifically thinking symmetry at the time.

On the bear, comments elsewhere suggest it might be a tick.
