A new addition to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin is this magnificent Siberian Tiger. Weighing in at 500 pounds, he must be expensive to feed! They named him "Cyber."

1/400th sec., f/8 @ 250mm, ISO 400, no flash


Same tiger, same vantage point, different day, different lens.

EXIF should be intact, all shot with A100, beercan, 24/2.8, and Tam 90.

1 White Lion formerly of Siegfried & Roy's act (I guess it was the White Tiger that bit Siegfried, or Roy, or whoever it was that got mauled) -- the White Tiger was also there, but wasn't visible from my vantage, that day (and the Lion shot was taken through some very dirty plexiglass).



2 Croc Perch



3 Sprawling Meerkat



4 Sprawling Meerkat II



5 Hippo Face



6 Big Catfish at the zoo aquarium



7 Goat Petting Zoo I (the little guy in green is my son, the woman is my wife)



8 Goat Petting Zoo II

A7RM4, A900, Min 24/2.8, Min 50/1.4, Min 85/1.4, Tam 90/2.8 Macro, Tam 70-200/2.8

Thanks, myself, cope, kennethb and garykohs went on an excursion at the Houston Zoo. As a thank you to the director, a business friend, we provided the zoo with our pics in a book made at mypublisher.com.

They liked it so much, they made a couple of changes. printed 300 and gave it away to large donors and are selling it in their gift shop.

Thanks, all of these are great!


As I recall, i think it was this one, he got sick and passed shortly after htis shot...
