A Day at the DC Zoo

A Day at the DC Zoo

We’ve lived in northern Virginia for over 10 years, and I’d only been to the DC Zoo once prior to today. A coworker and I decided to head over Sunday morning to try out luck photographing the animals. I didn’t have the best of luck. In my defense, the animals don’t simply pose on command. You have to be very patient and hope that when something interesting happens, you are in the right place with your camera pointed in that direction. The tricky thing about shooting at the zoo is that what would otherwise be a great shot, more often that not, captures a fence, man-made pond, or something concrete which makes the animal look like … it’s in the zoo.

Here’s the King of the DC Zoo.
