Nice shots, but the snake made me jump when I saw it! :)

Great shots, the Bull snake and monkey paw are fantastic!! :-)

WildBlack said...

Great shots! The last shot tells a story of its own! :D

I think I have to say that the primate paw/hand is the best shot, for me. It 'sucks me in' - I want to know more!

I'm really enjoying those animal close-ups. So many people go to the zoo and just get pics of the entire animal off in the distance. This is way more interesting.

Shirley said...

Well done- that last shot is my favorite. The rhino has interesting texture.

Deanna said...

I am in awe. Beautiful work!!!

Love them all. I like the giraffe and the paw best!

Well I know the rhino isn't a close-up, but it's my favorite. It's interesting to see that the horn is so fuzzy at it's base.
The primate paw is a cool shot, too.

But...NO, NO, NO...snake! gah!
I hope he stays over on your side of the neighborhood. *shudder*

Great pictures. It's a good lesson that getting up close and personal is a good way to make interesting pictures.

Well done.
