Here's one shot through glass. It's not a great shot but I love the expression on the hippos face. There were dozens of screaming jostling kids, I got this shot real quick and got the heck outta there!

Here's another one. This one was shot through glass but the software cleaned it up nicely. I think the alligator was hoping someone would throw him a nice tasty tourist!

Since we're talking zoo here, does anyone else have problems shooting around endless tourists? I can't count how mahy great shots I've lost because of crowds. One little girl kept running from exhibit to exhibit in the reptile house, shrieking with fake fear at each snake. Drove me nuts! She thought she was being fun but honestly, it was really difficult to cope with.

I fell your pain but they are visiting just like we are. I had a little kid bumping in to me constantly at my last visit. Finally I think that his mom got the hint when she saw the dirty look I was giving her :evil:

While it is frustrating as heck they are kids and don't know better. The parents on the other than. Well that is another story...

Just another one of the hazards we deal with as photographers :-)

I really like this capture. First, because I have never been to a Zoo in deep snowy winter. Second, because I think most animals are hiding keeping warm away from the cold. Third, this cat was caught in mid flight. Fourth, the shot does not look like it was taken in a zoo! What a shot! Congrats!

Thanks, in Helsinki Zoo many animals - including the big cats - are more active when it's colder. It's much nicer to visit the zoo during winter months when there is more to see and practically no crowds compared to summer months.
