I have not been to our Zoo since April 26, 2016 due to my hip problems so it was nice to be able to visit once again.

There were a number of new exhibits I had not seen before. The Grizzly exhibit was nice but it is a challenge to take photos through the glass viewing areas but glass seems to be the new norm for exhibits now.

I continued testing the new lens today at the St. Louis Zoo.

Two things I wanted to test today:

1. Lens used with my Gimbal head, and
2. Lens used with remote shutter release while on the tripod.

Results were inconclusive. The photos still don't jump out at me as being GOOD photos. I don't know if this is the lens or the photographer. I know when I have not shot for awhile my photos are not as good as when I have been shooting quite a bit.

I went to the St. Louis Zoo today with the Jim Scharff family. I had given daughter Emma an old dSLR as she is taking a photography class in school and she seems to love it. It was a nice day so we all decided to take in a day at the Zoo.

Pictured (L-R): Emma with her camera, Ben, Tiffany, Lily and Jim

Went on a Zoo outing today. My good friend, Lee Phillion, wanted to get together to discuss photography. She has an old Canon 30D and wants to get a bit more into photography.

We talked photography in the Living World building and then went out into the Zoo for a quick photo tour.

I am enjoying taking photos inside this winter in the Primate House. The primates are housed behind glass windows but for the most part the photos come out pretty well.

I decided to make a Zoo outing today since the weather was a bit nicer than it has been for awhile.

My main objective was to try out the video feature of my Canon 1D-x but I also wound up taking some photos as well. I shot just enough video to learn that to get better at it I would have to devote a great deal of time to that task. Not sure I want to devote time to that but it is nice to know that in a pinch I am able to get something.

I went to the Zoo this afternoon after lunch to take some photos.

I was mainly wanting to take a number of photos so that I could test out my new Lightroom Workflow and work out some kinks. I got some decent photos using my Canon 1D-X with the 70-200 mm + 1.4 TC

I was itching to get out with my camera as the weather is really nice for this time of the year... 70's today. I decided to go to the Forest Park Zoo after meeting a friend for lunch in The Loop.

I visited the Forest Park Zoo today with my Canon 1-Dx camera and my 500 mm f/4 lens to see how that combination would work together. I absolutely love what that lens can do. It captures colors perfectly and it has great bokeh. LOVE that bokeh.

I visited the Forest Park Zoo today with my Canon 1-Dx camera and my 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens with the 1.4x TC. This is a great lens combination as a walk-around. I use it for most of my people photos.

I went for a Zoo outing today. I was set up with my Canon 500mm to take photos of the chimps (see below) when an Amish family arrived at my location. This young lady was an interesting subject so I had to get a quick snap of her (paparazzi-style). Believe me.  It is hard to be sneaky with a 500 mm lens!

The St. Louis Zoo is my "go to" place for photography spots when I am in St. Louis. We are very fortunate to have this free attraction available to us.

The Malayan Sun Bear's diet includes termites. Its long tongue is perfect for this diet.
