The fifth and final edition of the Chester Zoo on film series, all taken on my Canon AE-1 Programme with 50mm lens using Agfa Vista Plus 200. I hope you’ve enjoyed these image’s because I’ve certainly enjoyed sharing them, if you’d like to see the other entries click on the quick link on the right hand side of the page.
An Asiatic Lion, look how far down it’s stomach the mane goes. This is just before it sprayed in the face of a small child, oh how we all laughed.
I’m not sure, although I’m 99% certain, that this Rhino was pregnant. It was separated from the other rhino’s and the next day I read on the zoo’s website that one of the rhino’s had given birth that very evening.
I only took these two photo’s of the rhino’s, the indoor enclosure they were inside at the time was deathly quiet and the standard Canon rasp that the AE-1 and AE-1 Programme are known for when the shutter fire’s spooked it a little so I had to stop.
You can just about see a tiny head in the arm’s of this monkey, apparently the baby was only a day or two old.
Monkeying around, or not as the case may be as we’re carefully watched by this guy.
