Lion posing for me in great afternoon light. I find the winter is the best time of year to visit the zoo to photograph the big cats. You can only take so many shots of sleeping cats in the summer.
Otter stopped to look up at me while eating ice/snow chunks broken off from base of rock to his left.
Jaguar came out of enclosure briefly in the -10C weather. Shot with Sigma 50-500 through the surrounding mesh enclosure.
Llama against the winter sky (which did not register in the image).
Bear lifted his head a moment before returning to his afternoon nap.
Pausing to look at the gathering crowd.
Mother lion with two children.
Stretching out while waiting for the keeper to arrive.
