A wintery day at the zoo...
Lens: DA*300 and DA*50-135 Camera: Pentax K20D Photo Location: The Cincinnati Zoo - Cincinnati, Ohio 
Posted By: Bud, 12-04-2010, 07:41 PM

I made my first "snow day" trip of winter 2010/11 to The Cincinnati Zoo this afternoon....

Once again, the K20D and DA*50-135 / DA*300 performed admirably in the heavy, wet snow. Auto-focus worked well most of the time... I switched to manual focus when the snow was really heavy.

Of course, these guys were into it....





The Malayan Tigers were curious





Apparently, the flakes on this day...

...were very tasty



I watched this macaque catch snowflakes for 10 minutes.... very entertaining





And, I even spotted a few other adventurous souls enjoying the unique experience of a snow day at the zoo...

The perfect day for a father-son outing...


Thanks for looking...

Bud

All great, but the first Macaque shot really stands out! I love the contrast of his pinkish face. What a catch!
