This week's DSLR Speed Challenge #105 topic is:
From The Zoo


I never tire of visiting the local zoos. There is always a captive audience to choose from, both inside and outside the cages...I'd like to see what you see when visiting the zoo. From the creatures lurking inside the cages or enclosure, to the surroundings, to the very visitors. Be creative and have some fun with this

Shot at "MonkeyLand" in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. It's a free roaming multi-specie primate sanctuary (vs. a pure zoo - in the sense of the word). If that's not in the spirit of the contest, I'll gladly delete my entry.

Will a wildlife recovery sanctuary count?

This is Big Al. Big Al is a 120-plus-year-old Aldabra tortoise at the Knoxville Zoo. He has a youngster that he hangs out with...Tex...who is only 80 years old. A group of us photographers were allowed to get up close in their enclosure one Saturday morning to take photos. Big Al was more interested in breakfast...than the photographers.
