Nice set John. Who are your three "friends"? They need to learn to keep their elbows tucked in and possibly turn their left hands around to give more support. ARE the Pentaxians as Papa says?
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

I really like the seal photo.

I'm somewhat alarmed by the crocodile/alligator/cayman though. Hopefully that wasn't lurking in a broad?

Slightly OT and the reason the above comment is only half in jest: My son and grandsons found turtles of varying sizes sunning themselves on a log in a pool in woods here in the Netherlands, which they loved, but which bothers me a lot.

Left to right, the three photographers are Mark (brother-in-law, K20D), my wife Sue (K-5) and Diane (sister-in-law, K10D) all a few feet from a very large tiger.

The place was Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens (fantastic and well worth a visit), which also answers Gwynn's question!

PS The seals were a colony of around 50, just lying on the beach at Horsey. We were stood only a few yards away and they were quite happy to just gaze at us in an idle sort of way.
Best regards, John

Snap! I was taught for maximum stability to rest the base of the camera on the palm of my left hand and operate the lens (zoom/focus) with the fingers of my left hand whilst keeping both elbows tucked in.

Notwithstanding, I like the shots

It's a fair point, but I think I shall have to let them off with that one. They were actually trying to get a picture of a very close tiger and avoid the bars that separated them. I suspect all other considerations were swept away. Having said that, I don't recall seeing any of the tiger pictures yet....
Best regards, John

The seals bask on the sand at Horsey. You can just walk up to them, but not too close as an enraged seal would be very unfortunate I think.

The seal is very appealing, nice shot. Just been to Norfolk for the first time (the northern bit). Beautiful tranquil place. Not sure why I never thought to go before! Mountains aren't everything. Flatlands have their own sort of beauty.
