Won 1st Place in the Buffalo Zoo Photo Contest

This photo was selected as the 1st place photo in the mammals category. My 6 year old is thrilled because he knows that the photo and my name will be on display for a year at the zoo. It was taken during a trip to the zoo very recently after upgrading from a D70 to a D5000. The 12mp resolution of the D5000 allowed me to crop pretty heavily and still get a decent shot. This is why extra MP can be very handy. I simply could not get any closer to the tiger.

Taken with the 55-200VR. Handheld 1/160 @ F/5.6. This lens does very well wide open.
