I love visiting zoos with my small family, and shooting while avoiding to make it too obvious that it was in the zoo ...

Not always an easy task.

Anyway, here's an album entirely shot in the Belgian Zoo called Planckendael.

That post is like TUMS for anyone with GAS. Old 1st-gen, 12MP body with kit tele zoom. :thumbup:
Yeah, I guess so! I've never regretted upgrading to the E-M5, yet I still sometimes miss the E-PL1 - a perfectly capable camera that can excel when the conditions are right. And I've always felt that the 40-150mm is a killer lens, way better than it's price tag suggests.

There is something exquisite about this image. I think it has to do with the way the hair lays and the smooth wear on the wood. Whatever it is, it is very interesting.
Thanks, much appreciated - glad you like it.
I've always been drawn to it because there's a lot of expression in that monkey's face.

Thanks for saying this. I also felt the image is special, almost monchrome except for the brown hair over the eyes, and the green of the grass in its hand. An exquisite, deeply felt shot of an exquisite creature.

From a variety of zoos (Washington, Dallas, Honolulu), all with the Panny 100-300 and either G3 or G5. I'll do birds another time.

Looking for help

These two ladies were discussing a scavenger hunt they were on at the Houston Zoo today. They approached me thinking I was a tourist they needed, seeing as I had this G5 with Pana 100-300 hanging from my neck. BTW the lady with the Orange hair assured me it was a wig. Oh and I will post pic's of the zoo animals later when I can . I know this should be in street threads but it was at the zoo.:rolleyes:

Zoo Outing

Was a rainy day at the zoo, most of the animals were inside their enclosures and away from the public. I'll post the birds in another thread (show birds) :rolleyes:

Eastern Giant Eland and her calf.

A couple more shots from the other day. The peacocks wander the grounds uncaged; the zoo itself is their home. And of course they occasionally make an ungodly racket. This one was sitting quietly over the entrance to an exhibit.



And a (tired) Red Kangaroo

Here are some taken at the SD Zoo a few years ago:

Not using m43. however, as I was using a mix of Oly 4/3 and Nikon APS-C at the time:

This thread inspired me to request a zoo visit for my birthday (7/25). Here are a few shots from the day. We also got to feed the giraffes, but the only photos I have of that are from my phone, so I'm not including them. It was fun, at any rate!
