I went to York's Wild Kingdom in York, ME on 8/20. I had a great time, but the sun provided me with some very harsh lighting situations. I'm planning on another trip which hopefully won't be so bright! Here are some photos I took of some of the big cats. These are straight out of the camera with the exception of cropping and sharpening.

Bobcats - Ok, not really the BIG cats, but I wanted to include them here with the others anyway. These little guys had just woken up from a nap and were ready to play a little bit. I got there just in time.

Lion - Very majestic looking creature! Tough shooting having to go through the fence with the lighting, but I'm pleased with how it came out.

White Bengal Tiger - She was very lazy when we first arrived, but by the end of the day she had some life to her as she wandered over to a big chunk of ice that the zoo keeper tossed to her.

Bengel Tiger - What a gorgeous animal! Her "next door neighbor" is the white Bengal Tiger. She was watching her every move very closely as she went to get her ice. After a few minutes of watching her, she got up and began stalking her. The last shot was taken just before the zoo keeper gave her her very own chunk of ice.

Awesome shots, I would love to get some of these in the wild but I would need a telescope.
