"Dwight...very nicely done. Makes me want to go to a zoo soon."
Thanks, serendipidy! Just like I have been with the images everyone is sharing on this thread, I'm glad I have inspired you to go shoot at the zoo.
"Dwight, beautiful shots of subjects that might be less than "beautiful"...in the eye of the beholder of course!"
Thanks, CarlTN! I try to put a different twist to zoo animals. I like to capture them in a decisive moment wherein they're doing humanly behavior. Still trying to be patient and still learning.
"hi dwight...how's the 1dx treating you?"
Hey Northstar! The 1DX has been nothing short of superb so far! Not a single error message on my 'Camera status log' so that's a good thing too.
"i like your second shot of the gorilla with the plant on his face....i like his expression!"
Thanks for the kind comment! He was relishing his snack!
"remember when we were talking 6 months ago about counting actuations up to 1000, well now i'm somewhere closer to 30k lol...how about you?"
You're right...been over that now...no niggles (apart from the "not so" silent shutter) and no regrets. Sadly, not as much time as I would like to get...I'm at a little over 15K.
