I went to Monkey World today. A great learning experience, the lighting was poor. My first experience shooting manual focus (because of the cages)...it turns out that I got more "hits" this way than I usually get with auto focus.

They are a bit grainy, and not all spectacularly good shots, but I hope they are a bit of fun to look at anyway. I'm though they would come out worse, so I was quite happy just to get a few keepers.

Very well done and for the first three, somewhat sad.

The first one is of a very young baby. Monkey World looks after monkeys which have been ceased by the authorities, so many of them have been maltreated in the past. The conditions at the park are excellent. It was dark, cloudy and all of those pictures are indoors. The hardest thing to combat was the glass viewing windows, which were grimy from kids' hands and faces!

Lovely shots John. The Hornbill is beautifully done. You've captured the eye to perfection.

My (uneducated) guess would be a common darter?

Hi Cat,

No expert could be a common darter or yellow winged darter... both have yellow/brown abdomen's... not very sure though....

I think No.1 is a Jackdaw and No.2 Herring Gull. Nice photographs.

Yay for that Deer greyjackal - that's just a lovely shot, made all the better by the fact that it looks ever so slightly unhinged.

A deer on the edge, if you will.

It was utterly fearless. Looked well odd straight on like that though.
