From a Nittany Lion Alum, congratulations to LSU! Great series! No. 1 is my favorite: shows of the majesty of Mike!

Impressive shots, definitely. Looks like your $15.00 purchase is going to work out well for you - amazing what you can sometimes get.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate all the nice comments. I hope they don't look over processed. I played with them quite a bit before posting and I tend to be a little heavy-handed on the sharpening, etc.

Mike's a good subject to photograph when he's in the mood. I can only imagine how impressive he'll be if/when he reaches his expected weight of 700 lbs!

I'm pretty happy with that lens, too. Of course, it's also caused a bit of LBA and the desire for even longer range.

It wasn't exactly a but whoopin, but it was a win. Those shots are really beautiful of a beautiful animal. Not bad for a 15 dollar lens!

I've now looked at your pictures on 2 different monitors, and they didn't look over processed to meon either one.

Hey - a win's a win. First 2X BCS champs. Don't knock it - Coooee!Dem kay-jun, dey doan lak dat, no! :-x

This Mike has much better quarters than his predecessor did when I attened LSU - no photo ops like these were possible through his cage bars. And human portraits are suppoed to look better a little softened, so why not a tiger's? Great shots - you did well.

Thanks, penolta.

Yes, the new habitat is very nice. The new Mike tore it up pretty good though. Before coming to LSU, he had never even walked on grass, so in his curiosity he destroyed almost all the plants in there.
Are you from La.?

Not originaly - I spent several years working and studying at LSU. Great state - I could have stayed, but the heat and humidity, the mosquitos and the fire ants all drove me out (developed allergies to the last two)!

there isn't much to photograph around here in the winter really.
If you think that, you must not be into bird (or other wildlife) photography. Get yourself down to Cameron Parish - there should be more winteringmigrants there than you can shake a stick at! Anywhere you go in Louuisiana there should be wildlife everywhere around you, from gators to crawdads - and bugs galore.
