"Wow," Preston was really impressed with the lion exhibit at the Philadelpia Zoo this week!

This was my first visit to the lions at the new cat exhibit - "Big Cat Falls" that gave me a reasonably good shoot of a lion. Persistence pays off...
Otters are very active and very fast... Technically this was a difficult shot to capture. Shooting through dirty plexiglass, I was using a Nikon D200 with 18-200 zoom with vibration reduction - the ISO was bumped up to 1600 to get a reasonably fast shutter speed of 1/500 -- shooting 5 frames / second.

Spring wild flowers... With bad "hay fever" it is a real challenge taking these shots... runny nose... sneezing...

Eli came for dinner. After we cleaned the food out of his hair and wiped his face, we were able to hold him down for this shot (it was diaper time). He is so active it is hard to get a nice tight shot in focus...
