  20. I am almost (but not quite) tongue-tied. I can see tiny ripples on the animal’s tongue. This capture feels incredibly close and I‘m glad to know it’s a caged creature … even though it would likely do better in the wild. Thanks for sharing this fantastic photograph from a zoo in your world.

  33. fantastic capture! i went to the zoo yesterday for my husband's birthday but we didn't get close enough to any of the animals to get any stunning photos like this. well, i take that back, we DID feed the giraffes and camels... but it's somehow not the same as the big cats. :)

  34. Wild animals are really one of a kind; and with these shot I am became more convinced of their strength and charisma. I'm wondering how this great images looks like if the
    Nikon D3200 were used in capturing their shots.
