You seem to be a pro at this. Do you:

1. Take a bunch of pictures to get the good ones?

2. Wait for the right and perfect moment?

3. Both?

My method is to wait patiently for the animals to do something and then I will take a few shots. I will set up the shot with the right shutterspeed fstop etc so I know it will come out good :)

Wow. That takes a great deal of patience. I use a digital video camera, make several adjustments (e.g. lighting, outdoor, indoor, everything), and try to keep real steady. At home, I watch the videos and take screen shots of any good poses I happened to film.


I thought that's what you were doing, honestly, the shots are so good.

Oh no I take the photos myself. I find it a lot more fun and challenging. Taking video is fun too of course :D

Do all of your photos come out so perfect? I swear, every one you post is just that. I feel like I have to wade through so many of my own pictures before I find a few I'm happy with.

Once at my zoo in Cleveland, Ohio, I witnessed a rabbit get into the lion enclosure - the male lion ran after it so fast roaring and stuff and it was so scary! But the rabbit got away. He probably peed himself though from being so scared!
