Work has been somewhat stressful over the last couple of months. Reached a point where I just needed a couple of days away from the office to recharge.
Unfortunately timing was not great as it's currently school holidays here, but I figured I'd brave heading along to the Auckland Zoo anyway.
Weather had been crazy and I was a little dubious on the day, but got lucky! No showers and a generally okay day weatherwise. The place wasn't crazy packed with kids either.
I just packed my trusty 70 - 200mm and went for a wander. I got pretty lucky.... first time seeing the Kaka and timing a couple of the experiences quite well.
Overall I'm pretty happy with the selection of shots.... even if I hadn't engaged brain and checked what shutter speed I was using until late in the day. Oh well.
Oh and it helps if you know the right people... ;-)
