There exists a certain partnership in the Zoo. The animals are fed well, washed, scrubbed and groomed. If they fall sick they're taken care of and they can live out long lives without constantly looking out for predators. Looking the the animals pacing around their enclosures though, I can't help but detect a certain sadness emanating from them. Perhaps, it's more of a prison than we realise. Here are some shots for sharing though from my zoo visit.

#4 is definitely right. On a second look, #5's colour is rather cool. Will adjust on the original.

What you have captured does show a sense of sadness from some of the pictures, and in others a sense of contentment and hint of mischief.

Good shots all across, Stoned. Finally I see someone with truly good animal portraits. Special invite - when you free to go urban animal shooting with me? After mid-terms? Or after your A's?
;)
