^ ^ ^^Love your images!!!!!^^^ The polar Bear is too cool.

That is Debby. She was actually batting flies from her face and when I caught this. I call this image "Camera Shy". I had to clone the flies out.

She was put to sleep from complications in 2008. They were seeking images for our main newspaper. They picked that image and it wound up as and 8 by 10 on the second page.

They figure about 18 million people visited her over the 4 decades at our zoo.

Wow she was 42....that's amazing. Congratulations on the image being printed in the paper. I can see why they used it. I love images that show the human qualities in animals.

Thanks very much for the kind words. When she passed it was very tough on our city.

some really great shots by everyone here!

I tend not to shoot at zoos, as i'm a bit of a 'wildlife' snob. But its a fun place to get some photos and practice - try out things you wouldn't do in the wild, and shoot animals you'll never have the chance ot shoot otherwise.

messing with 10mm wide-angle closeups

seen one of these in the wild, but never will get to shoot something like this
