Tiger ambush by John44

Holland..Today I went with a RB friend to the ZOO and we had a Tiger encounter of the first kind. Testing my Photo gear..soon I go on Vacation to the Med..not sure what to take with me, camera’s that is ..its weight versus quality.
If I take my best, the 5d Mark II camera and 2 lenses its quite a weight.
This photo was made today with my Canon 40D and Tamron PZD lens 18-270 .. A little less in quality ..but save my self a lot of room and weight only need one lens.
Anyway , Camera here :
Canon 40D
Tamron 18-270 is PZD on ISO 400
F 6,3 – Appt Priority / full length 270mm hand held / 1-125 sec.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!
