      What a little cutie. Great detail and dof. A lovely shot.

      oh I've heard about this tapir-ette.... how lovely, I'd love to see him/her.... "Mum have I got a big nose?" "No darling, it's the perfect size..."

      What a beautiful picture!

      His name is Vasan, and his mom's name is Sayang.

      ...and his father is Ka (originally Kakak Goetz) from Dortmund Zoo.

      In a blatant bit of self-promotion, I've some got some more pictures of Vasan on my blog.

      Somebody else should try telling Cute Overload how cute he is, as they don't seem to be listening to me :P

      Good DoF, nice sharp focus and a great subject - being picky, I'd prefer to see just a little more space above the ear, but otherwise, a good shot.

      Zooper shot...
      Absolute excellent portrayal of this wonderful animal. Its like he has a mini trunk...
      Vasan must be thrilled with his portrait...

      Beautiful shot! I'm still trying to get a decent shot of this wee one (preferably before she loses her stripes). She's always indoors with mum whenever I'm there.

      I'm back 17 months after my original comment just to say that I'm still terribly envious of this shot. I was there on Saturday as they have a new baby tapir but it was indoors with mum. I can't seem to catch a break! This time I'm determined to get the shot I'm after, even if I have to camp at the zoo!
