Why is the Giraffe licking cement? What happens when the weather turns cold? I'm pretty sure tigers aren't used to cold weather, are they?

Cool photos to say the least.

Thanks for all the comments. I went with a group of members from http://www.photography-on-the.net , a Canon DSLR site. One of the girls with us was kind enough to let me use two of her lenses and one of the guys let me play with the fish eye.

The fish eye is a Russian made Peleng. Totally manual down to the aperture and only $250 if you find them on the right site. Fun lens to screw around with and a bargain for the price.

All the Giraffe shots were taken with a Canon 70-200 f/4 L. The 70-200 comes in f/4 and f/2.8 with IS options on both. It's one of Canon's most popular lenses and one of their sharpest zooms imo.

The elephant shots were done with the Canon 17-40 f/4. It's heavy and definitely a very high quality piece of glass.

You can really tell a difference when using the L lenses vs standard glass. Too bad they usually run $1k+ a pop. For the Giraffe shots and the Elephant shots, I really didn't need the extra sharpening I did, because they were so extremely crisp out of the camera. I might have even went a little overboard on the Elephant one.

All photos were pretty much just sharpened and shrunk down, with the polar bear and leopard photos having the WB adjusted because they were shot from behind glass.
