My pleasure, and thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it.
dang gavin! nice work man. love the tiger too. but i will say that giraffes are not boring! those are my favorite mammalian anaimal. haha. nice pics though man, thanks for sharing! also what lens did you use?
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.
Great shots no doubt
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!
Great pictures Gavin.
I do. I was hoping to get some great photos of hyenas from you, bu oh well...
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.
A pair of jaguars:
Some other lame boring random animals
The photos of the jaguars are really incredible. I'd like to use them as desktops, if that's okay.
Sure , I'm glad someone actually likes them.
I love Elephants
One day I'll ride one, better view than Horses - LOL
Those Jaguar Pix are Beautiful also.
In my experience it's a bit of a rough ride lol.
Yes, the tigers are beautiful.
wow that would be kool to take a trip there!
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.
