Wildlife Photos at Port Lympne

A few weeks ago I went on a one-day wildlife photography workshop at Port Lympne wildlife park  ( http://www.aspinallfoundation.org/port-lympne ), led by my favourite photography teacher Nigel Wilson ( http://www.photographycourses.org.uk ) and, as it’s been a rainy day here today, I’ve taken the time to sort through my images. I struggled with a dodgy telephoto lens during the morning, with most of my photos turning out blurry, but changed to a Nikon DX 55-200 telephoto lens after lunch and managed to capture some shots of tigers and lions (and a shot of cheetahs and a gorilla) that I’m pleased with. Lesson learned — always carry spare lenses! It was a very sunny June day, so I used a filter to cut out the glare — this was a huge help as well.

Here they are. What do you think?
