MANIS AND LANGKA ARE BROTHER SUMATRAN TIGERS AT THE KANSAS CITY ZOO. THEIR NEW ENCLOSURE, OPENED LAST YEAR, IS GREAT FOR THEM…NOT SO MUCH FOR PHOTOGRAPHY; HOWEVER, I DID MANAGE TO CATCH THEM AT A ‘PLAYFUL’ MOMENT.
This is one of my personal favs! Eland, to me, are incredibly beautiful in coloration, shape and liquid eye. This image was taken on an early Sunday morning at the Kansas City Zoo as the herd made its way to the river to bathe. Shot in RAW, daylight plus manual flash to fill in shadows.
These fine fellows live in an aquarium at the Kansas City Zoo. By changing their diets, these frogs no longer secrete a poisonous substance as they do in the wild.
