These are awesome! I especially like the first and the black-and-white.

I haven't been to Potter Park in ages. Maybe next time I make it back to Michigan.

I love the mystical kitty picture, plus whatever that animal is that is 2nd from the bottom. (And the ape hand...)

Thanks :-)

Second from the bottom is a meerkat. The hand is a spider monkey.

The spider monkey hand frankly could be a still from an old horror movie. :-D

You have a good eye for composition. I especially like the moon and the cat.

Thanks! I have more moon shots I want to experiment with, but I think I need a helper who can hold still better than my 11-year-old son ;-)

I really like the hand poking through the cage bars. I have a shot of a sloth claw hanging from a rope from the Omaha Zoo many years ago, but the sloth wasn't cooperating last month.

BTW, I added a couple of telescope pix Saturday night and posted them to my blog here, thought you might be interested.

Those telescope shots are awesome! Now I'm gonna have to go try longer-exposure pics on clouds. I love that effect!

Thank you. Those clouds were really moving, plus these were 30 second exposures, which is the max most cameras have without going to bulb mode. Some cameras have bulb mode, and if not, you can usually plug in an external release or intervalometer. Another option is to plug the camera in to a laptop via USB: I know Canon has control software for Windows or Mac, I assume Nikon and others also do.
