I began my photographic hobby at the age of 12, developing and printing 120, 620 &35mm B&W, forever learning and refining the fascinating art of photography. Now at 78 I still continue with increased enjoyment using digital medium – and still learning.
My favourite places for photography are the Melbourne Zoos . These are the Melbourne Zoo , the Healesville Sanctuary and the Werribee Open Range Zoo.

    Wow, what a great expression! Right at this moment, anyway, he appears to be perfectly wild and free!

  • He is a happy chappy I think , the open range zoo is quite expansive and does give the Lions room to move compared to other Zoos I have seen :-)
