Collection of animal portraits

We are in the process of backing up our computer files. Thousands of pictures too! By looking through my folders I came to a beautiful collection (modest opinion...) of portraits I made of animals. Most of the pictures I just took at the zoo. That requires some extra attention, because you often have to deal with fences or glass behind which the animals are behind. And sometimes it's hard to take pictures without people on it. Although that is also quite fun, taking a day of pictures in the zoo with just the people as the subject...

So beautiful always those beautiful orange eyes of the owl! They look so smart. Although they do not turn out to be that evolution-technical at all! Yet they remain impressive.

This white tiger wanted to pose for me, what a sweetheart it is!

Do you see that I have taken the eyes as a subject for almost all photos, which are on 2/3 of the photo (read my blog about composition, see below this blog)

The colour orange comes back again, (oei, thingy, recurring oranges...) Beautifully these flamingos. The small depth of field (large aperture, small f-number) makes the background blurred, so the focus is really on 'my' flamingo!

He doesn't know if he can sleep peacefully, or if he should keep an eye on that photographer. This question at him yields this cunning look. I think he eventually chose the first, quiet sleep. But his gaze, I had caught it by now!

The big boss in black and white. In his eyes you can see his own overview "I have everything to do”

Another black - white photo. You've seen him before in my blogs. In color what the contrast is too high, too overexposed in some places in the picture. Then it sometimes wants to turn out well to put the picture in black and white afterwards.

This one I find radiating such a great peace! Beautiful, the warm sun upside down!

This was a regular domestic cat I ran into somewhere. In the finishing work, I blurred the edges. It gives a dreamy image!
