A couple of photos from my recent vist to the Central Florida Zoo. This is the most camera unfriendly zoos I have ever encountered, with most of the animals behind glass or wire cages.

1. Cheetah (Behind Glass)

2. Leopard (Wire Caged)

I know what you mean with the glass and the wires....kind of a pain but better than not having the animals around!

The pic of the Leopard is outstanding!! Very nice job!!

What lens did you use? flash?

7D + 100-400. No flash was needed, as the leopard was sitting in the exact right spot (ie in the 1 sunny bit) in the enclosure.

As for the no wires/glass - then they run the risk of what happened (external link) in my home town...
