    Great shots! It's inspiring to see how well you put the P45-200 to use in such challenging lighting conditions!

    Superb photography, Gary.

    This proves once again that all the people complaining about the IQ of the 45-200mm zoom very often just lack technique !

    Thanks for sharing these Gary - they're fantastic and it is the Greatest Show on Earth. We have an exotic animal ban here on the West coast of Canada, so many of the circuses that used to tour through Canada stop at the Rocky Mountains and we haven't had the circus come through town for years and years now.

    It's something I grew up with and was determined to show our 6 year old the real McCoy and drove South of the border to Everett, WA a few years ago to see the Ringling Bros and it was brought back so many amazing memories.

    Wish I had a decent zoom back then - but now that I have the Em5 with the 45-200 and 100-300 and the PL 14-150 heading south for another show might be on the horizon.

    Thanks Judy. It was great, prior to the opening curtain the audience was allowed on the floor and the children, clowns and elephants were within an arms length of each other. What saddens me is the event was not cheap ... every child should see this show.

    If you love The Greatest Show on Earth, you should check out Baraboo, where it all began.

    And Gary, I love your photos. You are great at capturing performances, and I'm inspired by your images.
