Default A Day at the local zoo for practice - 12 pics

Despite a cloudy day, it was uncommonly warm, so off to the zoo to get some 10D practice using ONLY the Sigma 50-500. I also only used either hand-held or balance points, no tripod. These are just some examples (not necessarily the best/my favs, etc - like the Prairie Dog Butt shot, just had to add that). None are 100% crops, though they are downsized. The Rhino horn at 100% has incredible detail, I thought. Hope this isn't too much:

Nice stuff. Very nice. We don't have a very good zoo up here, makes me wish I did.
