Okay, so maybe not ALL the animals wanted to play.
The challenge with zoo photography is trying to get a shot of an animal without showing glass, or caging. One trick is getting in close so you can chase out that reflection, or shoot through the wires.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we may take another trip to the zoo to practice animal shots, and reacquaint ourselves with the various settings on our cameras. There's a wonderful adventure coming soon and we need some serious photography practice before departing. This photo is a "hint" of stories yet to come!
This shot was taken through the glass of his enclosure, while he was waiting for his lunch to be delivered. I stood at a slight angle, to minimize reflection, and got in close. I was much more confident getting close to glass than I was to the bars of a cage.
On our next great adventure, I wonder what type of shot I'll be able to get! Hint...hint.
