Fota wildlife park 2011

I took these photos in Fota wildlife park about a year ago in February 2011. It was a very cold day, it was so cold that it was hard to press the camera buttons and I was dreaming of the gloves ) Animals seemed a bit chilly as well – they tried to hide in their houses, only animals who were lucky to have a thick fur dared to go out and to look around.

It’s much better to go there in summer to be honest, cause I usually take a heavy tripod, a small chair, a set of lenses and filters and I like to have some time to set up everything quetly and with no rush. If you go a bit further from the entrance (and small children) there will be a quiet park with small little creatures hiding in the thick grass, zebras and giraffes walking nearby…

I like it there a lot, I should extend my membership this year and go there more often.

      Of course I am. Well, maybe not the small chair, but everything else – sure ) I can’t take everything, but some necessary stuff like a tripod and filters and few lenses yup. Night photos! )

      Btw the chair is very important, I have a travel one that can be folded, smth like this http://images.yakaboo.ua/i_upload/galery/preview/45/37/9390728.jpg It’s very hard to take photos with the tripod without it – after some time the back starts to hurt.

      It’s an emu I think and it’s very beautiful! )
