Linton Zoo

So the Photographers Day at Linton Zoo arrived and what a scorcher it was. Now, you may think that a lovely hot sunny day is ideal for getting amongst the animals and getting some lovely pictures…well, it is better than if it was tipping it down with rain! However, all that sunshine casts some really tricky shadows which can really spoil a good picture.

Nevertheless, I went bonkers with the camera and came home with over 2,000 shots…the poor old camera will be warn out if I keep that rate of shooting up!

So here’s one shot that I was looking forward to taking – the Bearded Dragon. If you want to see more of the Linton Zoo shots you can visit my Flickr page.

Do you ever watch Monkey World? I must admit, I do enjoy the antics of all the chimps there, but I do have a soft spot for the Cotton Top Tamarin’s, so I was delighted to find some at Linton Zoo in Cambridgeshire.

Linton Zoo takes in rare and abandoned animals and gives them a new life, they also have a very successful rare animal breeding program here so it’s well worth a visit to help them support these rare animals.

I’ll be back in a month as I’m taking part in their photographers day where we can get behind the scenes and get closer access to the animals…I wonder if they’ll let me snuggle a lion?
