Weather was shaky in the morning but that allowed us to hit "good" spots without too much traffic. I couldn't ask for anything better. This was my second visit in Bronx Zoo and definitely not the last one. Here are few of my pictures.

These are great Jay. I love the Bronx Zoo. I made many trips there this winter when there were no crowds...
Thanks for your feedback. I plan to go again in September. We were told by Zoo photographer that tigers are amazing in september.

Jay, these are terrific....I loved the 3rd and last photos! While my favorites personally are the tigers, I'm always a sucker for the primates...:D well done!

Leigh,
Thanks for your feedback. I was looking at those gorillas and couldn't believe how similar they were with the moves and behavior. Starting with "dreamer" look, "suspicious" look to picking buggers and eating them :) Amazing :wink:

Frank,
Thanks for your feedback. I really had to play with shadows and highlights in gorilla shots. Those were always hard to photograph with successful exposure.

Hi Jay

Looks like you had a very successful visit to the bronx zoo. I especially like the 3rd and 4th images. I have always found it interesting that the animals at the bronx zoo love to pose for us humans :).

Very Nice Images !


Regards
