Thanks Charles! Appreciate it. This is actually the start of a series of shots of these two pups as their mom decides to take off down the hill leaving them behind. So cute. Glad you enjoyed the image.

Nice ones... but for two of the three I don't need to go to the zoo as they are regulars in my garden. :)

So - handholding the 200-400 for wildlife (even though it's in a zoo) is it doable? I think so, what do you reckon?

#1 1/640, f/5.6, iso 200, 560mm forgot the camera was still on jpg so this is straight off the card.

#2 1/1000, f/5, iso 100, 400mm yep still jpg and about 50% crop
IMAGE: http://www.davidstallardphotography.com/Animals/Zoos/Whipsnade-Zoo-Collection/Whipsnade-Zoo-16-05-15/i-DQC5n8m/0/XL/Whipsnade%20Zoo%2016-05-15%20%200025-XL.jpg

#3 1/1000, f/4, iso 200, 371mm back to raw, heavy crop as these guys were way up in the canopy

#4 1/1000, f/4, iso 320, 200mm 6 week old little ones are beyond cute - here the lens may have been just a 'little' too long.

#5 1/1000, f/4, iso 200, 200mm un cropped - a little close again lol

#6 1/1000, f/4, iso 250, 200mm "that's all folks"

One thing I really noticed - this is not a set up to use if you are paranoid. . . YES they really are pointing and talking about you lol.
