Cold dull and grey, and raining.:shock: So dragged the mrs to [link=]Tropical World in Leeds[/link].

Haven't been for a while heard they had a new croc/gaiter. Got there around 10.00am just in time for local junior school to do a tour.:shock:

Spent half an hour waiting for the camera to de-mist in the butterfly house, too humid though and wouldn't clear. Even tried wiping lens, just steamed up after 10seconds. It was the most humid that I can remember it though.

They seem to have less butterflys also, still got one or two shots of other critters, pushed the ISO upto 1000, I said it was dull.

All of these are shot through glass which is kept reasonably clean.

Mostly shot with the Sigma 70-200 except the croc and that was the Sigma 90mm macro.

Haha. That Iguana looks like he's thinking "Crap, another photographer" and flashing you a gang sign!
Thanks for the wildlife excursion.
