    This is the former San Diego Wild Animal Park - now Safari Park, sister zoo to the San Diego Zoo. We had a fun time visiting over the holidays. All shot with E-M1 and 12-40 or 100-300.

    This was pretty cool - they ran a cheetah full out at 60mph chasing this stuffed toy. At 10FPS, I only caught 2 frames with the Cheetah and at 1/1000, it was fairly blurry!

    I presume this one was with the 12-40 at 12mm? :tongue:

    I like it. A lot.

    The lion shot is incredible. We never get to see them that close. They're usually off sleeping somewhere.

    Actually it's the 100-300 at 100. The lion was right up against the glass and there was a mob of people. I managed to sneak in an odd angle shot between peoples heads. :)
