Great pics as always. Most unusual angle on the leopard for a zoo pic. You really must tell us some more about the upside-down peacock.

Another absolutely beautiful set of photos, Cathy.
What amazing feather detail in the flamingo, the pose you've caught in the clouded leopard is superb. BTW, I think your monkey is a baboon.

Wow, the lighting in the clouded leopard picture is just superb! Great photo.
The flamingo is also an excellent comp' and great detail on the feathers. I love the pose you've caught it in.
I'd like to know more about the upside down peacock too. :D
The baboon (or whatever :D ) is a great capture. Really shows how ferocious these animals could be.
The last one made me smile, wonderful picture.

Wonderful photos Cathy - I especially like number 6 and 9 both for composition and lighting. I think the monkey needs to see the dentist.

What is it about you and the cat family, Cathy??? Seems like every shot you take of them is absolutely superb - this one is unique - the light, expression, angle - everything is top-notch!
The flamingo is another beauty - the two shots together would make a great pair (the other being the one in your first post).
Is the peacock grooming?
And the monkey/baboon is a very vivid capture - impressive!
And I love the last one - the dog family all have some things in common, don't they? Is this a young hyena? What a great shot :D

Now just how do you come up with these exceptional pieces of work. #7 is my favorite!

Thanks for all the comments! I had a good day...some days I go and don't get many good ones, other times I do :)
Both peacock shots were taken from down below. The peacock was sitting on one of the other animal's cages which was about 12 feet tall. He let me get very close fo the shots. V wins...he is pruning in #8 and turned his head upside down to get to the underside of his wing.
The clouded leopard shot was taken indoors so shot on higher ISO than I would have liked. He was pondering jumping to a higher perch and looked up just as I clicked the button. I think that was my favorite shot of all of them.
Victoria the last shot of the guy on his back is a young african wild dog. They had a litter of 14 born last spring. It was the largest litter ever born in captivity.
