Yooranah the baby Koala and Mowgli the Jaguar

Me and my better half took our nieces to Edinburgh zoo for the afternoon yesterday and I managed to get a few good shots.

All shot with Sony A58 + Tamron SP 70-300mm. All shot through the glass viewing windows on the enclosures. Minimal PP in Lightroom 5 (I managed to get even more definition in the pattern of Mowgli's fur than I though was there when I looked at the camera).

Here's Yooranah the baby Koala (and his mum)...

And here's Mowgli the Jaguar. After all the other people stood at the viewing window moved on, he decided to get out of his bed and posed for me! Note that he is black in colour due to an excess of melanin (there is no such thing as a black panther)...

Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.
