Default A few more wild animals found at Busch Gardens.

Spent a few hours this weekend at Busch Gardens with the E-3 and 50-200mm.

I actually got in some street shooting of a few of the uncaged wild animals that I saw there. Thought I should share with the group.

Interesting question, folob.
Well, based on my many observations of our natives while gathered at the beaches, I believe this species is not native to Florida. The native ones at the beach seem to wear a lot less "adornments" than the Busch Gardens species.

I see your camera had a particular fondness for focusing on the apparent leader of the pride.

G'donyer Stephen

Amazing lens work there mate - glad you survived the encounter - pity the leader of the wild-animal pack is not able to become a household pet

regards, Phil

Huh? You're afraid of a little sword like that?
