All the animals hid their faces. Naw, I just made that up. Saturday afternoon I had a couple of free hours, but it was the middle of the day, with not a cloud in the sky. What can you photograph in harsh mid-day light, where the sky is not important? I gave the zoo a chance. We actually have a very highly regarded modern zoo in Wichita, and I haven’t been there in a couple of years so it was quite enjoyable. One of the newer additions is a pair of grizzly bears, which you can actually get quite close to. The only thing separating them from the people is a big deep trench (which it looks like he could jump, but I guess not.) This means no fences or railings to shoot through, although if I had a longer lens I might have been able to isolate some nice head shots. I’m not sure what use photographing animals in zoos serves other than being fun, I suspect true wildlife photographers would look upon this in disdain. It was a fun change of pace at least.
