The king of Australia

How amazing is it to watch a mob of kangaroos jumping across the green fields of Australia? This lovely model I found in Perth Zoo Western Australia. He didn't mind me getting up close so I shot him from every angle possible. The Red Kangaroo is the largest of all kangaroos, it's the largest mammal in Australia and the largest marsupial in the world. 

As always this is shot with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. These pictures are hardly cropped - I could get close enough to touch him actually. I've kept a hint of color to soften the b/w effect.

Orangutans in Perth Zoo

Testing my new 50mm lens at Perth Zoo, Western Australia, I found this little beauty. Caged up alone with his mother. I think he's longing for a play buddy.

These pictures was shot through a dirty glass window, and without a zoom lens I had to crop them afterwards. Luckily they were sitting rather close to the window. I kept a hint of color to soften the b/w look.
