    Today, I was looking through the photo galleries on the Telegraph website and browsed through a selection of photos of baby animals taken from a website called Zooborns.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthp ... world.html

    I'd been to Whipsnade recently and taken some pics of their baby elephant - so I thought I'd submit them to the site. I really didn't expect to hear anything from them.

    So - I was delighted to get an email from them and it made my day when they used them :D

    That's brilliant news!

    The photo is wonderfully captured too. Did you use a long lens?

    Thanks, Dan.

    I'm hoping that the birthday fairy might be bringing me a longer lens soon 8)
     
  6. For that lens, they are brilliant! I failed epically at Colchester Zoo with my 70-200L

    Hey John :D

    Thanks - she is a cutie. I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon though - I can't believe how expensive zoos are these days. I thought Leigh was going to have to have a sit down, he was so shocked :lol:

    Tom - I was really lucky - they came quite close to the barriers, so it was easy. I tried taking some pics of other critters, but they were rubbish because they were too far away for the lens.
