Photography :: Sedgwick County Zoo fall 2013

The animals were cooperative when we visited Sedgwick County Zoo on Nov. 2. I got some great images of 4-month-old Amur tiger cubs and a 6-week-old Grevy’s zebra, among others.

Here are a selection of my favorites from this visit:

It was National Bison Day during our visit, so I had to capture this pair.

Always love the meerkats and the shadows were cool on this day.

No animals to see here, just a cool pond area between the hippo and the zebra exhibits.

And here’s a collection of photos of the Amur tiger cubs. They were born in early July so they are just about 4 months old in these photos. Natasha is the female and was more active. Tsar, the boy, stayed toward the back of the exhibit. He was limping a little; keepers said it was from roughhousing with his sister. Mom is 8-year-old Talali, who is in a few of the images.
