Sumatran Tiger Cubs - 6 months old

I couldn't believe that I spent two hours at the cubs' cage. The overcast skies made for good lighting, and I had a hard time tearing myself away. I was so afraid that they would do something cute right after I left. Anyway, I got myself an annual pass for 25 bucks, so now I can go every weekend if I like. For previous posts: Tiger Cubs - 5 months and Tiger Cubs - 4 months.

Nice shots!!! You got rid of the fence w/ your lens! Each time I see the cubs they look twice the size they were the last time...they're still as playful as ever. Amazing that you got all those great shots w/ your F4 lens.

Nice tiger shots! I really like the cub chewing on the branch, so funny, they chew on everything. Good shooting.

Thanks Shun-Wah and Erick. I love to go watch those cubs. And I actually feel kinda frantic to get all the shots I can while they're still cute. So, I just might end up going every weekend.

Wow, these are great zoo shots! It is amazing how you reduced the fencing in the photos with the camera lens. What kind of camera and lens did you use?

By the way, up to saving lives with your camera?

Jalna, these pictures are great. They sure have grown a lot in 2 months. They are gorgeous animals. Glad you got a pass, now you can go when you want. That last post about the rescue animals sounds interesting.
