During the weekend that I had the gigantic 800mm lens for the moon photos I posted recently, Desi, Mom, Walter and I all spent a day at the Toronto Zoo. Thanks to the folks at the zoo for free passes! I got some great portraits of the big cats:

It was a great day, even though it was a little chilly and rainy. I could have spent twice as much time there, if my arms could handle the weight of carrying that lens around!

Check out the gallery below, and let me know what your favourite shots are!

    I agree. All of the pictures are amazing. I like the first, forth and 11th pictures best. Can’t chose just one. I love tigers. The cheetah is amazing. I love the colours of the flamingo. Great job !!!

    Hi sweetheart,

    I love the pictures. My very best favourite is of the Tiger. His looks are so intimidating and powerful, at the same time I admire this creature, it is so beautful!!! <3

    I love your work!
    I love you even more 🙂 <3

    Great photos, Donny. The tiger’s eyes are simply incredible. So magestic.
