Default HS10 rubber lens hood

Morning guys, I am planning on going to the local zoo in the summer and will be taking my HS10 along. Some shots will need to be taken through glass. In the past I have always struggled with shots like this as I get reflections of the end of the lens or flash reflection. I have an adjustable rubber hood ( would post pic but my photobucket bandwidth was exceeded until the 20th) and I need some tips on using it. Do I just extend it a bit and place it against the glass? And also how should I use the flash if it's a bit dark inside the enclosure?

I have not tried it yet but I have a Circle polarising filter and read these greatly help when shooting through glass so might be worth thinking about also

I have a polarising filter as well, would combining them be too much?

In my opinion, the combination will not be useful.
With rubber lens hood you will be blocking all the light and reflections from mirror anyways.

With rubber hood, you will have to stick the hood to the glass and then take a pic.

Well, this is just the theoretical information I have.
I have never used the rubber hood myself.
