Hi all,

Recently visited Madrid Zoo (again), and here are some of the shots I ended up with. Would love any critique/feedback. I am definitely seeing improvements year-over-year though. I would love to have the chance to do this in the wild, as opposed to having to go to a zoo .. but Madrid does seem to be one of the better ones:

Thanks guys,

I was very pleased with how the owl turned out. He was a very good subject, and sat very still .. but I never know whether I nailed the focus until I get home and get it up on the PC, luckily this one worked out. The hippo seems to be a very popular shot .. makes me laugh each time I see it, he looks very pleased with himself.

Cheers!
