All good Mike. But, as Pen said the tiger is outstanding!

I love that photo by the way ...... he / she has an expression of " oh oh rumbled .... I'm for it now" !!
I was really hoping to get a good shot of that guy and I'm satisfied that I did with that one. I like your 8x10 crop, I re-cropped a version 8x10 on my own system. Thanks.

This will probably be my only opportunity to see some of these animals in the flesh so the zoo works fine for me. With having young kids we've been to nearly all the zoos within a days drive of us here. I never really get tired of seeing these animals, even if they are in captivity.

Kinda like: "If this window wasn't here you'd make a tasty morsel..."

Fantastic series Mike, you really are putting some miles on your camera (and car) from Watkins Glenn to Toronto in a few weeks - where next?

Mike, while browsing your zoo photos from the link you provided, I saw something that really raised the hair on the back of my neck. I sent a PM to you, at least I think I did, I'm not sure if it went through.

No wonder. We had 2 weeks of balmy weather until people from Buffalo area came in.

Despite the cold weather and a lot of the animals off display because of it, we still had a fun time and I got some nice shots. Here are a few that I liked the best.

Playful Orangutan

Nice portrait of an animal trying to bundle up

Thanks for sharing your images

I saw your PM Jim, hope the photos weren't too traumatic. The name I was focusing in on is my wife's late grandfather who was a seabee during WW2. Kinney field is about 1/2 a block from where my wife's grandparents live. I was just hoping to get some good photos of the memorial after it was finished. I think it was nicely done.

I don't think the orangutans had to worry too much about the cold, the building they are in is kept pretty warm, apart from the usual smell of the animals I didn't really want to go back outside in the cold weather. Thanks for looking!

I love to photograph a lot of things when I get the chance but 90% of the places that we visit we try to gear towards the kids. If they aren't enjoying themselves then we end up miserable and that's just no fun. Thanks mole!
