Got a tiger by the tail!

The Jacksonville Zoo has a new "Land of the Tigers" exhibit. It has several tigers, different viewing areas and even a semi-open overhead walkway for the tigers to traverse from one area to another, overhead. All within close, yet safe, proximity to zoo visitors. It's really one of the best overall exhibits I've seen anywhere. Anyway, here is a quick and dirty from my visit today.

Sure he would appreciate a bit milk and little pieces of meat. Meeeaaaatttttttt.

A nice bokeh, which show us we're in a zo.

Jacksonville Zoo...

I took a look a the Jacksonville Zoo website... very nice... you are fortunate to have access to such a facility... your tiger looks quite healthy wink.gif

You are, however, incorrect about your definition of quick and dirty wink.gif.

Lovely image, including the bamboo and shadows... the whiskers, wow.

Hope you have an annual membership pass, so we can see more...

Thanks all. Casey, yes we do have a pretty nice zoo.

I do have an annual pass and it's my plan to visit more often this year, than I have in the past.
I say "quick and dirty" because I took a quick scan of the photos I took and liked this expression. All I did was crop, bump the saturation a little, maybe the contrast too, resize and sharpen the resized image.

All taken with a Nikon D7100 and 80-400mm lens
