I posted up a few shots of Colchesters tiger cubs recently, but here are the best of the rest from the day. Again, I was using my new lens (christened 'The Beast') which is a Sigma 150-600 c.

C&C always welcome. I'm brand new to using a big lens and a monopod. It doesn't always go as planned. To be honest - there isn't even always a plan :LOL:

1. Magnificent beard... to make up for the lack of mane I assume

I like the image of the wolf, very rarely get to see them unless from the land train when you often see them patrolling the perimeter fence.

The Chimp is fantastic too! Not that any of the others are too shoddy.

Really nice set. Sharp and crisp.
Thank you :)

Another nice set Fi, #4 that hard stare made me chuckle (y)
Thanks @Cobra - one of the ladies was circling him constantly. Poor fella had to be on the lookout!

Thank you! Tbh I've not had a problem seeing the wolves on our visits but maybe we've just been lucky!

I love all of these.
Again the wolf, is something I am trying to capture with no good result yet !
Thanks @Bobbies girl - fingers crossed you'll get that shot soon :)
