Rod's Critters


Rod's Critter Photos

San Diego Zoo - August 1999

This Zoo is probably one of the best in the world. I had a marvelous time here, but did not get as many good photos as I usually do. Perhaps, I was too impatient. However, the success rate is about normal. Ten rolls of film to get 10 good shots. You definitely need a zoom lens at this zoo, because some of the critters are a long ways away and some are quite close. My lens of choice is usually 70-200 mm.
