Regular readers of my blog will know I love to photograph pets, but I also love to photograph wild animals and birds. Those who know me well know I have a particular love of tigers. So I was in seventh heaven recently when I was fortunate enough to be able to get privileged access behind the fence at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire courtesy of Going Digital. As well as tigers, we also got up close with cheetahs, corsac foxes and maned wolves. We were able to photograph cheetah cubs who had not yet been put on display, adult cheetahs and tigers, just separated by a wire fence. It's only up close you realise the size and power of these magnificent animals. The day also catered for less experienced photographers, with tutors on hand to provide help and advice if required. I'm sure everyone went away with some fabulous pictures. Here are just a small selection of images from the day. Many thanks to Rod and Allison from Going Digital East of England and the staff at Hamerton Zoo Park.
Red kite - circling looking from scraps!
As you can see the weather was fabulous and sunny, but it meant that the tigers were not too keen on running to fetch their food!
Some great shots there Andy, wish I had been there, what lens were you using there?
