Default More zoo pictures

I mentioned in another thread in The Library cafe that I went to the zoo in Rotterdam a short while ago. I of course took a couple of pictures of some of the animals and have now finally uploaded them for your viewing pleasure.

Click here to see the photos

Heres a preview of what you will see:








I also uploaded 4 photos that I took of the frost on the trees back in December in Heidelberg.

I loved getting to see the Rotterdam Zoo...especially the Giraffes. They have a lovely family group of them there, just like they have in the San Diego Zoo. It does look as if the Parrie Dog is busy digging his way out... You take such fantastic photos...what kind of camera do you use?

The Baby...



The Parents...



as you can see we enjoy the Zoo too..

Maelin, I use a Konica Minolta: Dimage Z2
I've been really happy with it, but lately it seems like it's draining my batteries more than it used to.
It has a 10x optical zoom, which comes in really handy when taking pictures of animals. Konica Minolta decided a while ago that they didn't want to make digital cameras anymore, so you can't buy it in the stores anymore.
