Otters and tigers and leopards, oh yeah (mostly tigers)

And mostly baby (8 month old) tigers.

Went to PDZA (Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium) to see how Mali is doing. She had a rough time a few weeks back and happily seem on the mend. The funny expressions and vocalizations she is making in the pictures (according to the keeper) is since her surgery.

I'm pretty happy with the new camera, if the photographer could just remember to change settings back.  (For the photographers, i set the ISO up to 2000 to capture some action and left it there, DOH).  Some of these photos are a tag grainy.

Picture of the day: Sanpei the fire cat.

I'm trying to shoot more, and get more test pictures on the new camera. Raine suggested a picture a day. I'm not sure I can always do that, but that's the goal. Thanks Raine!

New Camera

Well, i got the Canon 7D with a 18-135 lens. I'm pretty happy with the choice. It was an angst-ridden decision between the 7D, 60D and Nikon D90.

The resolution, higher film speed, and the existing of the Canon's removed the Nikon from the running. The faster speed of high speed shooting and the fact that the 60D is the last of that line, made the decision.

I may sell the 20D i have to help mitigate the cost of the new camera, but i've not made a final decision.

Sanpei was good enough to model for the first post. Good kitty..

I've got a Canon and lenses. Is it better stay Canon or is it time to switch?
