    Thanks Steve!
     
  8. Great set!

    I enjoyed all of them. Great shots...particularly given the setting of a zoo.

    Thanks Glenn!

    Glenn, I arrived at the earliest hour, nine in the morning. Because of that the light is still rather good, not so harsh. Also there are few people then, so one can stand where one wants to get a photo.
    When I left at eleven in the morning, it became crowded, with lots of little apes, sorry children screaming for ice-cream etc...:frown:. The waiting line was then about 200 people, no parking places anymore. Also it was getting hot (~86F), so time to get away asap!

    I think if you go to a zoo, it would be wise to get in as early as possible!
     
  10. I visit the Brookfield Zoo quite often. I generally only visit when school is in session--and usually go later in the day (after the school buses from field trips have departed). When the kids are there, it's amazing how many of the parents allow their children to run right under my tripod! I've grown to expect it and always keep a tight grip on my gear.

    Unfortunately, my zoo doesn't open until 10 am. By that time, the light is already harsh! So, I tend to go later in the day or shoot in the indoor exhibits which offer nice, soft light from overhead atriums.

  15. Really neat shots Rob. I keep going back to #2 and the geometry of it. Very cool perspective and framing. Thanks for sharing.

    God Bless,
