It's amazing, Vinod, how each on of these animals has a different reaction to your camera. Guess they aren't much different than people when you poke a lens in their faces (even if it is at 300mm).

Enjoyed your series, especially the second one. Where is the Brookfield Zoo? Looks like a great place to visit.

Very nice series Vinod. I don't blame you. I would stay in the tropics too if I were you.... :wink:

Hi Vinod,

These are terrific! :D I am so impressed that you took them all at a very low shutter speed and the minimum ISO that would allow those speeds (to minimize the noise). This was a risk as those animals could have just moved and ruined the shots, but the gamble paid off handsomely. My favorite is the Orang-Outan. Great job, and thanks for sharing! 8)

Hi Phiippe, I think most of these animals were in the middle of their afternoon nap...so there wasn't much movement. Worked out good for me because the lighting indoors is pretty pathetic.
Thanks for looking
