A photo with teeth

ISO 500 135mm f/6.3 1/125

While this is not the best picture I have ever taken, I just love the teeth on her:) Well, from a distance anyway…

Cheers!

A Kangaroo in Motion…

Is really hard to capture.  Well for me anyway.  It was a bit shady, so I was having a tough time freezing the motion.  This still kangaroo photo was the best of the bunch.

ISO 640 135mm f5.6 1/60

Missing a chicken? check the recycling bin

ISO 800 50mm f/2.8 1/8

I mean, where else would you expect a chick to lay an egg?  I used the 50mm lens I am borrowing for these photos.  Because the lighting is pretty dark, the lower f-stop is helpful.  My 28-135mm lens only goes to f/5.6 and these three shots were all in the f/2 range.

ISO 800 50mm f/2.2 1/8

and my personal favorite of the actual chicken:

ISO 800 50mm f/2 1/8

Forget cake, let them eat bread

Slices of bread seemed to be a popular treat for these red kangaroos.  I wasn’t the one feeding them, I’ll leave that to the professionals, but it did bring them closer to my camera.

ISO 250 135mm f/5.6 1/30

The lighting was difficult in this shot, but I ended up going with the sunny setting on my white balance to get what I thought was the closest representation of the right color.

Cheers!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

The WordPress weekly photo challenge theme is close.  I got this photo this morning, close to the glass of the enclosure.  I was told the orangutan was putting the sheet over her head to block the sun.

ISO 500 50mm f/4.5 1/125

Cheers!

Me and the Chimpanzee

ISO 320 135mm f/5.6 1/100

Can you just imagine that I was sitting on the other side of the enclosure thinking, please look this way 🙂

ISO 320 135mm f/5.6 1/100

A bit of glare off the window.

ISO 320 41mm f/4 1/100

Also, some glare.  Will be back to try again!
