Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Nice zoo pics Tom :thumbup: . Always a great place to go to take pics of animals that we don't normally see wandering our neighbourhoods - probably wouldn't want to either! :D

Thanks for the trip to the zoo. I'm thinking my feet would be aching had I covered the ground you must have covered. I especially like the Tasmanian devil, cheetah, and elephants.

Thanks folks.
I still have a bunch of photos to edit from the trip, and I only stayed there for 4 hours! :D

A little after noon, it started raining out and my knee was hurting, so I called it quits. There was a large section of the zoo that I didn't explore during this trip along with the sea lion show that I intended to attend but didn't get too.
