Recently I've gotten in to photography thank's to my husband. He picked up this hobby a month ago and I'm slowly easing into it. We visited a wildlife preservation park to take photos, and I came back with these shots!

Lovely series- doing very well for a newbie. One thing to watch for is not centering the subject in the frame. Give subjects more room in the direction they are looking (even flowers)
