My wife surprised me with a trip to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, and she set up the Photo Safari ahead of time. It is expensive (about $90 per person) but if you ever visit San Diego County, you have to bring your equipment and do it. Amazing photo opportunities. I took about 600 shots with my FZ5.

There was only 5 people on the back of our flatbed truck, so it was roomy and nice.

All shots taken in "P" mode, -1/3EV with Auto-Bracketing On, auto ISO, auto white balance, cropped and resized only (ok, I sharpened one of them).

From 50 feet away;
