PostPosted: Sun Sep 14, 2008 6:41 pm 
Hi had a day at colchester zoo today and thought i'd show a couple of results.
Was a mixed bag of a day because was a bit frustrated by the blooming reflections on glass, countless finger marks and most was the realistation i need a greater zoom lens.....roll on christmas !!! :lol:

Beautiful! What makes the leopard even more special is that it is very near extinction (the most endangered large cat on earth) - I admire that zoos are trying their best to breed these guys and save the species. There's only about 30-40 of them, unfortunately. Lets hope we can save them!!

great pics mark, tigers were sleeping in thier room so couldn't get any photo's !
Also think the picture is great of the bird lovely composition and focus of the eye is pin sharp!
Serenity it is so sad the plight of the big cats as they are all so beautiful lets just hope there still around for future generations.

#1 is extraordinary in my eyes, as it gives you the feeling of almost touching the leopard. Very up close and personal!
Cant see no finger-prints on the glass! What glass? :wink:
((Well, there are some reflections in the glass on the left side, right? Perhaps need a polarizer, but that takes away -2EV :( ))
