    Shots From Fort Worth Zoo

    We spent the day at the Ft Worth Zoo. It is rated as one of the top 5 in the US because of it reptile house. I bought a rubber lens hood and placed it on the glass where I could to stop the reflections. C&C is encouraged.
    Thanks for viewing.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    #1 and #2 looks very good, Sam. I wish you could have moved just a little bit to the left so that the frog's rear was not covered by the foreground leaf. For me #2 is also nice. However, I am wanting some more of the snake on the frame. You handled the exposure nicely. Good job!

    Thanks Jiro. As the cages were all basically one sided it was not possible to get the frog any different. The snake was shot as to not include the "junk" above it. There were wires running across the top and the light shinning down.

    Hi Sam, smart move,I just finished two days of trying to remove reflections from a glass window. It can be a real challenge. You did real good considering the limitations you can face in a zoo. On the the other hand, you're not likely to get bit, stung, or eaten!

    I like #1 and #2 very much Sam but #3 is a bit confusing to the eye. I find that steamy reptile houses are a real pain to shoot so well done you.
