Here is my first attempt. Starting to get into this semi-seriously.



Mainly do Ice Hockey, during the season. Though I should go through my Animal collection and post more here.

Hi John,

Thanks for the comment's, means a lot coming from someone as accomplished as yourself.

Did it with a company called wildarena, they do a lot of safari's, photodays etc. This was at a wildlife breeding programme centre in Kent (used to be the centre run by born free association I think), it was an absolutely fantastic day though, the access to the Cats was through one wire fence only so was able to get much closer than at a zoo etc. Actually managed to stroke a tiger, which is pretty humbling to say the least.

Highly recommend there days though, (do a variety of courses and photodays with a wide range of subjects - www.wildarena.com)

I go on safari with them in september to the Masa Mara where they are also organising my wedding!!

Make sure you have some lenses on your wedding present list.

Some superb shots there bubbahotep.
It looks like you startled that first tiger. You still got all your limbs?

One quick limb check later... Yup all fine and dandy!! although scary thing was the big Siberian had trashed the door on its enclosure(from its's hut into the enclosure) the night before. the door was made of 5mm plate steel, when the tiger had finished it looked like a bit of corregated iron, was bent over in several places (almost folded like a towel) with a fair few punture marks from its teeth straight through!!

Blimey!

Moving on to slightly safer wildlife, here's a couple of collared doves taken from my bedroom window:

Do giant Amazonian fish count?

Shame to see this thread languishing elsewhere than the front page, I thought.

Thanks frank - I reckon I lucked out and got a bit of the glass that hadn't had little noses and hands on it all morning As for sharpness - that's the 50mm f/1.8 all over - best Ł60 I ever spent

Great shots from you there - as I commented on flickr, I like the second best - great placement in the frame, and a really nice "pose" by the bird.
