A twenty minute chair lift, baked in the sun for an hour and then seeing these raptors put on a show.
Not the easiest to capture, a fair bit of cropping to these shots too.
“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?”
Quite like this photograph of this fine looking leopard. Probably about a foot away from me although we were separated by a fairly sturdy piece of glass.
Pressed publish instead of preview so might add to this one later.
Quite possibly one of the finest zoos you can visit, if you’re ever in the Fuengirola area check out the Bio Park and take a walk around the lemurs.

Plaza Antonio Ordonez his ashes lie under the ‘toril’ gate which is opened to let the bulls in. His rivalry with his brother in law Luis Miguel Dominguin is remembered in Hemmigway’s The Dangerous Summer
A wee trip down to Glenesk Park today to see Dundee Violet entertain top of the table Fauldhouse United. Hopefully the photographs look alright because the post match hospitality was rather enjoyable.
Fauldhouse United go a goal up with a sweetly struck free kick. Would the Pansies have a retort?
Celebrating the first
Attacking down the wing
Drifting past the keeper before squaring the ball for the equaliser
Dealing with a lob
Fauldhouse players run off in celebration of a third and surely the winning goal.
The big debate
On his own
The finely struck sixth goal of the match, the Pansies bring it back to 3-3 with the last kick of the game.
The agony and the ecstasy.
Dundee Violet number 5 celebrates the dramatic equaliser
The Pansies celebrate in the corner, top of the table Fauldhouse are gutted!
The second match I’ve been shooting at and the second match a keeper has asked if I got any good ones of themselves. Next time I’ll focus exclusively on the goal keeper and between the sticks a place for the phony tough and crazy brave.
