As it was a nice day we had a stroll around the Yorkshire Wildlife Park with the K70 and 55-300 lens. Not really looking to photograph anything in particular but took these opportunistic shots. Always impressed by the sharpness of this lens even at 300mm.

Oh, it's the tiger for me. All the images are great but the magnificence of that big cat... Awesome.
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories

The monkeys for me, love the way the youngster has their hands crossed.

All are pleasing shots and the second is my choice. Although there are a couple of blown out patches of fur in the strong light, I enjoy the composition with the blurred but natural background, and both cats being attracted by something nearby so they are looking more towards the camera.

Really good! I've never been there, but it's time we did, I think - in a bit warmer weather, of course!

As it is only a few miles down the road we have annual passes and can go anytime. Midweek during school terms is always fairly quiet, apart from a few school parties. Great for photography with raised walkways allowing you to get natural looking shots without having to shoot through wire mesh fences.

As stated already, love the pose on the first photo by the mother and cub, love the fact that both are looking, gazing in the same direction creating interest in why that may be.
Nice work PRYorkshire.

+1 for me, was going to write pretty much the same.

In general you"re getting a great tune out of that lens.

When the title is Yorkshire Wildlife Park and you open it, I wasn't expecting that opening image to greet me

Is that 2nd image an adolescent male in the front?
