Default Dartmoor Zoological Park

Went out with the local photo club yesterday to the local zoological park. Was a great time as I've not shot this sort of thing before.

All with 7D and 120-300mm f2.8 some with 1.4x TC.

Mark, It looks like you made the most of your trip with some wonderful shots. I really enjoyed viewing them. Tigers are one of my favorite animals and got some beautiful pictures.

Cheers,
Steve

Could have fooled me! Looks like you have a knack for it. The big cat portraits are superb.

Thanks everyone. I really had a great time. Some were behind fences but with a wide aperture and getting close to the fence they pretty much vanished.

The club should be going there again next month so I hope to get some better shots/angles based on what I learnt this time.

Well, aside from the deer shot, you have nicely kept their captivity a secret. Nice job.
