Default A few of my 4 legged buddies

Thought I better get in some of the legged friends....
The water puppies were a favorite to watch. Very playful!
The only bad part was the viewing window was that it was really murky and the glass was smudged with tons of dirty finger prints!
They were swimming and putting on quite a show when one of the pair had to come up and find a place to take a leek. then he went right back in the water to play. Apparently there smarter most kids and won't pee in the pool!











Just thought I'd mention that the reflections you see in the glass are not me...

Very nice pictures, they sure look like they were having fun. And I can tell the reflections can't be you. Not to mention that I somehow couldn't see you wearing a layered tank top or having a figure quite like the reflection in the first picture.

LOL, You got me there, Harriet!
I had to go back to see what you were talking about. I hadn't even noticed her,
I have lost a little weight but, my figure isn't quite that slim yet. All I saw was the the guy with the red ball cap on.

Thank you Kev.
I used the DA55-300mm for all the shots I took at the zoo.
When I first started this thread, I was planing to include several more variety of the 4 legged species at the zoo but, it got late and I was really tired. So, I'll post some more in another post.

GW, I guess you otter plan your time better.

Next time you might try raising your ISO and using a polarizer to kill the reflections.

Your puns are killing me Pen. I think you otter quit it.
You're right of course regarding the polarizer but, unfortunately I don't have one the right size to fit this lens. I wasn't prepared at all for this outing but, you can bet I will be next time.

That last one Otter be framed and hung. Very nice detail. The 50-300 looks like a real fine lens.
