    Gibbon - this is the first time at this zoo I've had a lens long enough and sharp enough to get a good picture of these guys. Their enclosure is an island that is a good bit away from the edge of the viewing (due to their great climbing ability). This is a full frame at 300mm (600mm FF equiv).

    Lovely pix mate. A bit tight on the cropping or comp for my taste though.

    People should comment instead of those inarticulate 'thanks'.
