    These were all taken with the 70-200mm VR unless otherwise noted, this is my first trip to any Zoo with a DSLR. Still new to digital photography so any comments or advice is greatly appreciated thank you!

  2. I like the meerkat best.
    I do agree that a zoo is a very good place to become familiar with a new camera.

    Timely post as I've been considering the Oakland zoo. Been to SF zoo a number of times so I want to try something different. Although SF zoo just opened their new Grizzly Gulch http://www.sfzoo.org/new/. There are two day in a weekend.

    The Oakland Zoo is a pretty good Zoo, not bad for $9.30 admission. I never been to the SF Zoo, so I can't really compare. But what I look for in Zoo's is if the animals "looK" happy. If they look sad and depress... I probably would not come back to that zoo.
