You're VERY welcome. I'm in awe of your photos!



Thank you so much. I started this thread many years ago and slowly but surely been improving my technique and style. But I am fortunate to have a great Zoo to shoot at.

What did you do to get that guy on that black background?

It’s important to choose a right location to stand with shadows in the background behind the subject. After taking the photo it’s all photoshop magic of turning the objects in the background shadow into black.

Cheetahs are second most difficult big cat to shoot after leopards (which have to be kept in metal enclosures as they are capable of climbing over walls). They tend to hide themselves and the design of the enclosures makes it very challenging. But I take this as a personal challenge. I always want that one capture that will sit on my iPad as wallpaper. They have a very intense look and expression.

The zoo had a beautiful addition to the Rhino family. This little fella is about 7 months old.

Baby meerkats have that extra little bit of super cute, though... *grin*

For some reason the meerkats in our Zoo were not reproducing. I suspect that their enclosure were too close to the big predators that made them far too nervous to reproduce! I say this because they moved a pregnant meerkat to another enclosure far from all the predatorial animals. Seems to be doing well. Looking forward to their arrival!

But baby meerkats look adorable!
