Hear Them Roar

My Goodness, what a great day for pictures, light and sound!

A trip to Whipsnade Zoo was the order of the day and of course that meant packing the camera and a couple of lenses too.

First stop was the butterfly house always a good spot to start, amazing colours fantastic detail and good light too, I took the 70D and used the great Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 lens, it was perfect for this situation.

Time to stroll and I headed to one of my favourite spots, the Tigers, I took a few pictures at the obvious spot through the fence at the larger end of their enclosure.

I'd just finished and Botzman decided to stroll down, pick up a bag, have a little play and take a dip! How lucky to be there at that moment and the light was great too, late afternoon/early evening on a lovely April day. Quick switch to the incredible white lens the Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L. Took a few shots from above then headed quickly down to the viewing windows.

I missed the framing of a couple of my shots and had I not checked the screen on the camera I would have missed the amazing reflection completely, doh, I had concentrated on getting the detail in his head! Buzzing that I got that reflection shot now though.

I then moved on to the Lions that were making some fabulous roaring sounds and were a joy to photograph, caught the zebras and a few other bits before heading home at closing time.

Hope you like the pictures :)
