Wildlife Photography at the Zoo

I recently got my hands on some new lenses (50mm prime + 300mm telephoto zoom) and I wanted to try them out at the LA Zoo. The reason is simple: I love animals and I’m working on improving my wildlife photography.

The timing turned out to be perfect. Just three days earlier one of the female hippos gave birth to an adorable baby. The pair cuddled while the papa stayed close (see photo below). Check out my photos and I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below.

This is the new dad hippo above.
