Leopard


Photo Information
My first attempt at this sort of thing. Taken through rather dirty glass at a Bioparc Zoo in France. A little PP enabled me to get rid of the inevitable flare.
I was particularly interested in headshots and the expressions of the animals.

Looks good for having shot through zoo-glass.

I cant help thinking that the poor leopard looks a bit fed-up.

That is excellent taken though glass, the 55-300 is a quality lens in this situation

I was very pleased with the 55-300 as it had the right distances for different animals, birds and situations.
I was surprised that the glass wasn't a problem.
It was nearly closing time and I think the leopard was waiting for his supper !
