A Day at the Oregon Zoo

zoo low res - may 2009 for blog-4 We took a mid-week trip to the Oregon Zoo – in Portland.   The thinking was something like this:

“Hey, mid-week before school gets out – and the weather is mid-80’s…”

And when we arrived, big yellow buses filled the parking lot.

Oh, well.  At least it was enjoyable to get a day out – and though the place was filled with kids on field trips – it really wasn’t too crowded.

As for the photography – I started with the 70-200mm.  Nice for the animals roaming their enclosures – but not good for setting the scene.  Dang – tough choices…  Finally went to the 24mm – and kept that on for the rest of the day.  Trips like this, photographically, I think, would be easier with a wide-to-mid zoom lens.
