Incredible depth.

Gerri R. Jones March 15, 2014

Thanks so much Michelle, John, Jeff, Jill and Freddy for the kind comments! I really appreciate them! It was a challenge to get the shot through glass since I had to use a fairly shallow f-stop with dark light and fur...but there was some light spilling onto the babies face from the open area beyond where mom and baby were laying. It was really a thrill to see them together, I could have watched them for hours. I also talked to the zookeeper and they don't know if it is a boy or girl yet. #11001212
