A Trip to the Peoria Zoo

Today, I convinced my mom to go with me to the Peoria Zoo. It was a bright, sunny day and I hadn't shot any animals besides our own dogs in a while. It cooled off a bit while we were there, but it wasn't too bad. I was hoping some more of the animals would be out and about, but I still got some great shots. I think my favorite is the lion and his lioness. I spent a lot of time waiting for him to pick his head up. The lioness yawned a lot, but he just laid there asleep.

Happy Valentines Day | Self Portrait

I got into the Valentine's Day spirit for this one! Having the swivel screen on the 60D is great for these. And my $2 remote trigger from Amazon works great. I'm no expert or anything, but I am slowly learning and improving my strobist skills.
