Ever since I was a kid I have loved visiting the Zoo, and in particular Chester Zoo. Zoos as a whole have really improved over the years from enclosures that were predominantly caged enclosures, to the stage we are at today were the animals are kept in enclosures that better reflect their natural environment and live a better life in captivity as a result. This is certainly the case at Chester, and earlier in the year Sharon and I became members which gives us unlimited entry, and living so close to the zoo means I can nip down when I have a few hours to spare and concentrate on photographing individual species. Last week I concentrated on one of my favourite big cats.... Tigers... and it was great to see Kirana and her two cubs. Below are some of the shots from the morning. I also got some great Cheetah shots that I will post soon.
