Wow, there are some wonderful shots in this thread.

Even though there is nothing special about this shot, it will always be one of my favorites.
Nikon D80 with Nikon 2.8/70-200 (AF)


I enjoy the challenge that shooting at a zoo provides.
This was shot with a Nikon D3 and older Nikkor 300mm (MF)


This is a more recent shot. I enjoy shooting aquarium fish, it can also be a challenge, shooting thru a reflective surface full of a refracting material.
Nikon D3 with Micro 2.8/105mm (AF)

Botanical Gardens in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

There were a couple of fox cubs that decided to move into the gardens. Luckily I had my camera when they decided to
take a break in the flowers.

EOS 500D Using a 28-135MM F/3.5-5.6 at f/5.6 1/160 shutter speed iso 400 and at 109mm focal length, also, using an external, 72mm threaded macro adaptor.

I think this is a harlequin ladybird, an import and not native to the uk, photographed on my balcony the end of last year.

I just spent a couple of weeks in Tanzania and visited the Ngorogoro Crater. These two black rhino represent about 10 percent of the species left in Ngorogoro after a decade of heavy poaching. Very sad. Nikkor 300mm f4.5 ED-IF, Nikon D600.



Zebra on the Ndarakwai ranch on slopes of Kilimanjaro. Nikkor 300mm f4.5 ED-IF, Nikon D600.

This nanny and kid came into our camp early in the morning at Upper Cathedral Lake in the Pasayten Wilderness in north-central Washington and stayed for a couple of hours. I've had a 12x18 made of this image for our house -- just love the sharpness. Nikkor 80-200mm f4 AIS, Nikon D600. 1/400 sec., f5.6, ISO 800.
