African Veldt - Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA (Part 6)

I know that I am posting these photos a little bit late, but here they are anyways. So last year (12/7/2012), my biology professor took the whole class on a field trip (as one of our labs) to the Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA to teach us biology. While I was there, I took many photos of the animals and I am here to show you them. I have to say, I am not a big fan of zoos, but it sure is a great place for animal photos! If you love animal photos like me, definitely give your local zoo a visit. All of these photos were shot using my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens on my Canon EOS 7D.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. If you are interested, please select a link from the following list:

Message from the Photographer: My original plan was to write up a post yesterday, but I was very busy yesterday. Yesterday, I took my last test for this semester in school (yay for break), and then went to a photo walk at Pier 7 in San Francisco at night with some other photographers in the SF Bay Area. I got some pretty good sunset photos and night long exposures near the area. Will post them soon, hopefully. :) So yeah, let's get started with the post for today. It is going to be a pretty long one!

Today, I just have photos of Reticulated Giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulate), Common Elands (Taurotragus oryx), and the Egyptian Geese (Alopaoche aegyptiaca).
