A Virtual Zoo Trip - Caldwell Zoo, Tyler, TX
Posted By: cputeq, 07-12-2008, 04:45 PM

I took about a 2 hour trip to a Zoo in Tyler, TX. Nothing huge but they had some decent photo opps. Unfortunately, many of the animals were behind wire cages or glass - I'm sorry for any slightly fuzzy shots - It's all due to glass distortion / dirt.

Here are a few images I've managed to clean up so far - I will post a few more when I get the chance.

All with K20D and DA 55-300.

The Date

Over the Top (through glass)

Say Cheese!

Tucan (through cage)


Zebra (I really wish they would have wandered closer - very far away.

Old Slow Guy

Lion (through glass)

Not a Deer (but ain't it cute!?)


Thanks for looking!
