Here are a few photos from various zoo visits:

1. Tiny Owl

   ---            


2. Sparrow (not an exhibit, but he was at the zoo).

   ---            


3. Mandrill (This one came out quite well considering it was shot through really filthy enclosure glass)

   ---            


4. Heron in the penguins water

   ---            


5. Orang Utan looking all shy

My faves are owl, caiman (gorgeous) and orang-outan. For the owl (best IMO), I would have framed slightly more to the right (leaving about 0,5cm of free space next to the guys's sleeve), because as it is now, the owl itself is pretty centered.

Thanks. I just popped back into Aperture to try and re-frame the owl, but that was the actual uncropped photo.

I've got one of those lenses in the cupboard somewhere. Happy shooting.

Another nice self-portrait Deadbear. Nailed focus and the colour of your coat is wonderful. Great boke too.
