Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Close Ups

CFFC close up 2

Getting close-up pictures of animals in the zoo is not as easy as you might think.  In my experience they’re either hiding behind a rock, shrub or tree, deliberately standing with their back to the camera which presents a less than flattering image or, worse still, not even in the enclosure.  How many times have a scoured an  area in the hope of spotting something even if it’s only a stray ground squirrel, only to discover a sign stating ‘This exhibit is temporarily closed.”  And I haven’t even mentioned yet, all the bars, wires and other barriers that prevent the would-be photographer from getting a nice, clear shot of the subject.

Not that I don’t appreciate having something substantial between me and a lion or a polar bear when I go to the zoo but it does make the exercise much more of a challenge.  Which leads me to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week which is ‘Close Ups’.  The images that I’m using for this challenge were the result of the few rare occasions when I’ve actually managed to get close enough to capture a half-way decent shot.
