    My first try at using a telephoto lens! Was a bit tricky as I used a Vivitar 70-210mm with my Nikon D3200, so I had no exposure meter and had to judge it myself!

    Cheers Ivar! Yeah I love lynxs, such beautiful creatures. That photo was taken leaning over the side as it was hiding in the shade! It's a wonderful zoo, as the animals have such large enclosures, terrible if you don't have binoculars or a telephoto lens!

    Nice set, Robbie and that Pigmy Hippo certainly makes me smile. I like the Elephant a lot too although it would be nice to get a touch more light onto its eye if you could. The yawning Ostrich is a cracker as well. :)

    A good set. A little dark, I guess because you had to judge the exposure and the screens on cameras can be a little too bright.

    You could probably solve much of the exposure in software such as Lightroom or basic editors like Picasa. I really like the Pygmy Hippo.

    It has been a good few years since I have been to Whipsnade Zoo. Memories, :) thanks.
