As you all know, I spend quite a bit of time at the zoo but today, I was on a mission. I have a new camera and needed to test it out. Below are some, perhaps, strange images. The first two images are of our Wart Hogs.
Then I went to the Gorilla exhibit. The first thing that I saw is pictured below. Once it saw me, it ran like the dickens. I’m quite please because all the images of it running came out tack sharp. I don’t think I would have captured it as sharp with my other camera.
It must have been frightened of me because we all know that Wanto wouldn’t hurt this little guy. Wanto is below.
I then found this next little guy hiding in the grass. We don’t often see it because it’s so skittish. Normally when it sees people, it runs inside to hide. It is a Kirk’s Dik Dik. I know that it was watching me but it didn’t seem to be threatened with my presence. That’s always my goal when photographing wildlife.
Then, I took a shot of a side of Murphy that we don’t often see!
I had to try to take some shots where the lighting is a challenge so I tried inside the Discovery Barn.
I do have to admit that I left many shots out. While I was just doing some testing, I have to say that I’m very impressed with the clarity, color and sharpness of each shot. This new camera Rocks! The blog doesn’t really do the images justice as they are very small Jpeg files. What do you think?
Oh Yea! I almost forgot! I posted a couple of shots for friends on FB to see if they could identify a couple of animals. The first one is…..
It is a………………………………
I know that you cannot see the entire animal so you’ll just have to trust me! HA! The next one is ……………….
If you knew or guessed it to be …………………………..
I hope you enjoyed our short trip to the Kansas City Zoo!
Please come back again!
