Nice pics, am especially jealous of the Grevy Zebra, something we didn't get to see in Kenya!

I really like that first shot of the jaguar.
edit: not sure if its a leopard or a jaguar looks like a jag though, nice shot either way!

And some goats.

Well done on getting the red panda - he's always asleep whenever I visit ;-) The Dikdiks are really cute though, aren't they?

Hey Ben nice to see you're getting some great shots with the 300/4.
I like your stuff. IMHO the best zoo shots are almost invariably the ones that either provide no cues at all that the pic has been taken in that environment, OR clearly portray - and take advantage of - the zoo environment. You've managed both. Anything in between doesn't make it....

Hi Nick, yes I'm loving it thanks ;-) In fact I'm carrying it to work every day at the moment as I'm determined to get the kingfisher I often see on the walk home - no luck yet, though, those things are fast!

These are all excellent Micholand and with the 500 Reflex I presume? Great sharpness and the donut bokeh is very well controlled.

I particularly like #1, love the pose on #3 ('almost' human like?) and the lighting on #8 is very skillfully controlled. Thanks for sharing.
