Zoo Pics 2
« on: December 31, 2012, 11:55:20 AM »
Since the Zoo Pics thread is getting quite long, I thought I would start a new one.  Here is a shot from Christmas Day at Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium in my state of Arizona.  (One of the few zoos I know that is open on Christmas).

Canon 5D2 with Sigma 85 1.4.

Took these in AZ last week. T2i with 100 Macro L, unfortunately left the 70-200 at home. Bad planning on my part, but still relatively happy with how they turned out.

Love the lynx in the snow.

And nice to see the last set of four from my hometown zoo Reid Park (Tucson, where I am a docent).  Too bad the rhino Ybonga was by the metal posts when you were there.  The photo does not show it, but we actually have the best rhino exhibit of any traditional zoo in the country.  Lots of grass and trees and the rhino lives with gazelles and african stork and bustard.

A city park more than a zoo, but still a giraffe is zoo material! right?

A couple photos taken recently at a workshop I lead every spring and fall at Reid Park Zoo (where I am also a docent).  We get to go to some areas normally off limits which allows for some unique low angle shots like this.  Both with 24-105 f4L set at 24mm and camera (5D2) set on ground pointing towards animal.  In other words, just point and shoot blind.

Thank you, but just for the record it is a rhinoceros, not an elephant.

Well crap. I thought its mouth looked wrong, but mistook the horn for a trunk.
