    Taronga Zoo, Sydney

    Hey Guys,

    So I finally managed to make my required pilgrimage to the world famous Taronga Zoo here in Sydney, and am glad that I did! I had never shot at a zoo before, but I rather enjoyed the experience, and think I came away with a few keepers.

    The iconic zoo photo, the Giraffes overlooking the harbour

    These guys are rather hard to shoot, opting to stay eyes closed and tucked into the trees 22 hours a day

    The Komodo Dragons played along nicely with my attempts to photograph them

    That pelican shot is sick! Those komodos look a lot less dangerous than they actually are

    By the way thanks for sending the World Cup Quantas 744 our way :)

    Those are really cool Nick! The giraffe shots are epic and that koala seems to be enjoying that tree quite a bit.

    I certainly wouldn't mind calling some of those my own - excellent shots.

    Thanks guys! I was really pleased with how they came out.

    Captmjk16, you have no idea how much they enjoy those trees...especially sleeping in them for 20 hours a day. Getting one with its eyes open was a treat!
