    Here's a few of the shots I took at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo yesterday while with F15Todd and family. Since there were quite a few, I'll provide a link to the rest, for those interested. All shot with D2X/70-200+TC 1.4

    Leopard shot through a fence:

    Great shots, Steve! Getting those through fences, cages, and glass makes them seem even better. Really like the gator with its reflection!
  9. Great shot Steve shooting through the fences can be difficult at best

    Alligator is stunning.

    Peacock is really nice too.

    Great work.
  11. Hi Steve,

    Late to the party, as usual, but a quick note to tell you that I really liked them all, with the leopard and the gator being the favorites.

    You've got some really sharp images and wonderful colors, and the fact that you were able to go past the fences and glass make this an even better show: they are very natural looking. Heck, you "could" claim that you were in the water up to your chest with the gator, you know? National Geographic style! ;-) :lol:
  12. Impossible for me to choose, they are all beautiful
