Went to the zoo on 180207. Taken until now to process the RAW files. took 300+ and got them down to 104 shots I am relatively happy with.

The good thing about going back on a regular basis is it improves your eye and skills no end. I am now fairly confident again of handholding my Sigma 70-300 at the 300mm end, with no monopod!

As always, thanks for looking and comments +/- are always welcome and appreciated.

Interesting collection.

The giraffesgrooming each otherlook kinda cute and the vibrant colours on the duck really stand out.

Thank you Catbells and Roger.

Can't remember what the duck is called.

Obviously all of these were taken in Tom's backyard and in the pond behind.You didn't mention you had been to see him. :-)

Nice pictures, you covered the whole kingdom of animals.

Thanks Glenn.

Hayward - I think it may be a Wood Duck? Not sure though, but I think someone posted one a while back.

One of our birding friends should be able to help.
