Thanks Cody. :) I used a Nikkor Micro 105mm (actually a macro lens) and a Nikkor 55-200mm (a telephoto lens). They were borrowed though.

awsome. hows that 105mm? god i want one bad. just cant afford it, plain and simple. i have the 70mm to 300mm lens(not great but ok) but i really like a 35 to 55 mm and a 80 to 200mm both killer but outrageous prices.

At least you have more than one lens. ;)

The 105 is a fantastic lens - very sharp, very fast. But like you said, expensive of course.

Hey Gavin,

I really like these shots, especially of the white tigers. Are there any hyenas in the zoo?

Glad to hear that. :)

No, they don't have hyenas. Who likes hyenas anyway - they bully the cheetahs!

Awesome photos.

I myself primarily use a Sigma 105mm Macro Lens and was wondering if the Nikkor is any better? I have noticed my Sigma is a bit slow to focus unless the subject is almost completely still.

Also, I don't think those Tigers are leucistic....from what I know, "leucistic" means an animal that is completely white (patternless) and has either black or blue eyes.....at least, thats how it is with reptiles.

The photos of the jaguars are really incredible. I'd like to use them as desktops, if that's okay.

I am quite impressed with the condition of the Zebras. They are all too often overweight at zoos, but those look in excellent shape. Equines just aren't ment to be fat.
