    the zoo is actually one of the nicer things in Detroit. lol.

    though it still is far behind the Toledo Zoo, which is pretty much its only competiton.

    hmm I think land is - comparativly - a lot cheaper and accessable in the US than it is in the UK - its a shame our zoos are generally so small!

    and I know hes all out of focus (through glass and he was prowling round the whole pen - plus a little close for me to try and get him in focus - a shame, and when he did lie down there were peoples and thier reflections all over the place!)

    Thanks both = I use a cannon a EOS 400D with a Sigma 70 - 300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro lens
    for all the above shots.
    I hope oneday to get hold of one of the really good lenses (something with image stabalization!) course they cost about as much as a computer - so will be some time yet!

    right my last lot are all gone from here ( well moved in the bucket ) but are up on my blog if you wish to seek them out - but here are some new ones (these won't vanish!)

    Here we go for Whipsnade Zoo!
    The day started of wonderful, bright with clear skies - but 4 hours later when the zoo opened (10am) the clouds were rolling over a bit; so patchy sunlight all through the day; chilly start too, fingers a little slow, but it warmed up a bit (and walking around helps!); only bad bit was getting pleted by hale in the last hour or so - but again patchy, not constant.

    Flamingo - I was going to walk by and ignor the birdies -- but I decided to stop and spend a momnet there --

    I love this little guy! He not only posed wonderfully - but he was also close to the camera as well - in good light and not too badly behind bars --
    ps - that is 2 different shots with differnt zooms - not a crop of the original

    pinioned so its never going to fly (they do this to the chicks, prevents a wing from developing and thus the bird is grounded - and thus can be kept captive without a large enclosure

    I just really like his look here!

    and I didn't even notice the little one when I took this pic - shame the lighting went to bits though!
