    Hi Griddi,

    Looks like a fun time... I like the hippo image the best for the composition and great detail in the hippo. And the orangutan shot because it is cute and fun.

    Well done Griddi.
    The only thing that I can fault is the Flamingo. Why did you cut the legs?
    Great exposure, colour and contrast. Well done.

    Liked them all, especially the bird in second image. Desired there were more eye contact. The Orang really gives a laugh; yes, the flamingo's feet had an unkindest cut
    Regards

    Christina, thank you for looking and comments, I would have been keener to catch the orangutan when he was more in the open, but it was quite a cool day, so he ( or she ) keep behind the glass wall........

    Thank you Andre, Yes, I agree about the cut off legs of the Flamingo, the problem was that I had only with me the 300mm lens on the camera, and I had to put this distance between the Flamingo and myself, as it was only a narrow path I had to cut the legs off, otherwise I would have finished off into the bushes behind me.......

    Thank you Nandakumar,

    as I explained already, I had on the camera only the 300mm lens, ( next time I will also take a different Lens, just for some of these shoots ) I had to shoot the flamingo from a distance, the path was narrow, and if I would have gone further back to save the legs of the flamingo, I wolud have finished off in the bushes, which were behind me......

    Greetings,
