I really like the pics of the big cats. The ones of the tigers are especially impressive! Nice!! Jay

Thanks Jay. The lion took a fancy to my g/f. He stopped pacing, looked straight at her for about a minute, then walked towards her, stopping only when he got to the glass. She didn't geta good shot of this as she was frozen, just mumbling "I'm scared" over and over.

Surprising how big a lion's head is when only separted from you by a pane of glass/perspex!

Thanks Mtngal. This is what I would call a lucky shot. When we arrived the bottom tiger was where he is, but flat out, and the top tiger was at the rear of the enclosure behind some bushes. We stayed for about 10-15 minutes and this shot happened.

I always feel a warm glow when I know I have a good shot. Doesn't happen often enough, but practise, delete, practise, delete, works eventually.

The shot of the 2 tigers looks good enough to be made into a poster! You couldn't have asked for a better framed shot. Good lighting too.

Thanks Royce. It does look similar to a poster in a book I once read.

Just wish I was more consistent with the good shots.
