Another shot I took at the zoo. I usually bring my camera to the zoo but don’t really shoot much. I guess it’s more of a fact that I don’t like to have animal shots that you can tell it was taken at a zoo so unless I find that I can frame a shot like this where it’s difficult to tell where it was taken, then I usually try to get a decent shot. For this trip I was just trying out how the 105mm macro lens did for some animal portraiture with auto-focus and I was quite happy with it. I also had the chance to get some shots of my kids at the zoo in the process.

This is also my submissions for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. To view other great monochrome photos from other photographers please visit her site on Wednesday’s to take a look if you don’t already.

I was impressed at how well this photo turned out as I had the ISO at 1600 and it was taken through glass. I think I would have been able to get away with saying it wasn’t taken behind glass if there weren’t any smudges on the glass on the upper right hand corner. These little monkeys moved around so fast I had to keep clicking away. I’m not sure how many pictures I took to get this one and it was the only one that turned out. Thought I also would give you all a break from the winter photos, but don’t get too comfortable as they will be back tomorrow.
