Hans and Flew thanks for your comments, there are so many subtleties at the zoo that often go unnoticed and I tried to go for those moments. Almost all of these shots were done through glass or fine wire mesh, so I had a heck of a time focusing (all manual!) and I have to say I am especially proud of some of the tiger shots. What is really interesting about China, is that the habitat's they they have for their larger animals are really amazing (although I don't agree with the concept of zoos) they live good lives. Some of the smaller animals on the other hand, could really use a new home.
Nate, these are really nice. I especially like the zebra pic. I tend to like shots like this that are focussed in on a portion of the animal to show great detail, while still making it reasonably obvious what the aninal is.
Your tiger shots are superb!!!! Must have been a fantastic trip.
