I think I caught his attention. Taken at the Oklahoma City Zoo. It is rather amazing this shot came out as good as it did since it involved me leaning over the rail about three feet trying to get my camera lens through the steel bars between us.

This guy was on sentry duty... he was keeping an eye on things. This one was taken behind glass, used the technique of putting the lens as close to the glass as possible to cut out any reflections.

And finally this guy looks like he was deep in thought. I wonder what he was thinking? Another one taken behind glass. For some odd reason I liked this one in b/w.

I like them all, but especially the cat and the chimp. Its hard to tell there was glass between you and them.

ishino,

You have some real nice shots. I know what you mean about shooting thru the glass. Trying to avoid those reflections is really hard sometimes.

Great zoo shots ishino,

No cage or fence to see, if you told us you had taken some outdoor shot's I would have believed it. Oh yes love the bear the best

Very good shots. Can't choose between them.

I now use an old fashioned technique I picked up about 20-odd years ago. I bought a couple of rubber lens hoods.

Screw into filter thread, and press to the glass. All refelections gone. I found I can also use the Sigma flash without getting any bounce back.

Cat and chimp have my vote, even if we're not voting! Nice captures of the captured - you can sense a sadness in all of them
