5530 Sumatran Tiger

After Kevin and i heard the enthusisam of the guide of the zoo trolley as we were walking towards the tiger exhibit we knew something special was ahead.


Of course thats when the battery in my camera decided to die!


As Kevin was yelling at me to get my rear end over to the exhibit i was frantically attempting to change my battery.


Fortunately, i was lucky enough to get a few images of the Sumatran Tiger up in a tree!


We spoke with some zoo staff and they indicated that while this has happened in the past, its not that common so we were very fortunate to get some shots. It was a lot of fun and thanks again to my friend Kevin for the invite and motivation to "Get the shot!!"
