Nice shot, I like.  Is it worth cropping out the blurry white line (wire barrier or top of glass pane) at the bottom?  It detracts a little.

Thanks for pointing that out - to be honest I hadn't noticed it myself but you're right.

Unfortunately I can't crop it out without significantly changing the aspect ratio of the photo and getting rid of it any other way is beyond my skills. Wire fences do have a nasty habit of getting in the way at zoos, but it's definitely good to avoid them wherever possible.

alasta, nice shot. Did you close-up shot of the one with the baby?

Thanks. I didn't zoom any closer - I don't think that lens would have been long enough actually.

Jaxson, nice shots too. Are you sure they talk about fish not about car or something? Laughing

Wow, stunning. Great colours too.  I have a bee pic I took on an old Canon A60 thats kind of similar.

I really like the bee photo. 

GZ needs a "+1" button or something. :-)

Taken today at the Taieri Wings and Wheels.

Not the greatest lighting or composition, but great aircraft nonetheless.
