Philadelphia Zoo

My husband and I visited the Philadelphia Zoo this weekend which was technically a birthday present to him, but gave me the opportunity to practice some nature/animal photography.  When you shoot through fences and screens, you have to get pretty adept at manual focus, which can be a challenge when you don't have a dedicated manual/auto switch, or a proper viewfinder (which I don't have on my Sony NEX) trying to use the LED screen to focus the shot in the bright sunlight is nearly impossible, however, many came out relatively sharp. We both had fun and I rediscovered a love for animal portraiture.
