Default Zoolights

We took Bella to our local zoo last night to see the lights and the animals. My lights pictures didn't turn out real well, but I got some pics of the Princess playing in the suds. I have never seen an attraction like this, but the kids LOVED it. At first, she was apprehensive, but once she got her "feet wet", we couldn't get her out of it.

1) She looked a little "iffy" at first. The first five pics were taken with my trusty Sony A300 and the Tamron 28-300 at f4.5 and 1/100 sec with on board flash.



2)



3)



4)



5)

6)This one was taken with my sal50f1.4 set at f2 and iso 400, shutter speed 1/80



7)Same lens and settings as previous pic.



8)A pic of me, taken by me, feeding a spotted fawn. All the animals acted happy to see us, because we had cups of food for them.



9)Last, Bella ready to feed the animals. The weather was mid-seventies, so it was a good night.

Looks like Bella was enjoying herself very much. Wonderful memory captured!

JJ, she really did love those bubbles. I had a hard time getting her out!

Hey Simon! You're right I hadn't noticed that. Most of the time all we could see was her head, so she did a lot of floating as well.

Robert,
Sorry for the late post, know I looked at these pictures before but not sure why I didn't post a comment? Brain fart on my part I guess. Anyway very cute pictures of Bella playing in the bubbles, must have been a fun night for all.

Haha! I do that all the time! She really had a good time, and I always enjoy the challenge of getting her pictures, she moves so fast!
