Well done to all for getting some decent images at Howletts. It has to be one of the worst zoos in the UK for photography purposes (imo) with all those fine mesh cages, covered in foliage making them dark and often set well back from the paths making it impossible to remove the mesh with shallow DoF.

I have only visited there once and found it hard to even see some of the animals properly through the mesh, never mind photograph them. The larger animals aren't too bad as they are in more open enclosures, but photo opportunities are limited, or impossible, with way too many species.

Brilliant shots everyone. Great to see you all again.
I am totally gutted I didn't see the tapirs especially a baby one. :( Lee that shot is just adorable, they're one of my favourite creatures ever!
Clare, that "Let me out" is great - very poignant, and perfect focus.

here's one of mine, so difficult with the bars everywhere wasn't it.

Really like the processing on that elephant shot Paul - looks very similar to an image pulled from a photo album of a one of my relatives who was a soldier stationed in India during the late 1800/early 1900's
