Hannah and I went to Longleat again recently. We’ve been a few times before because we enjoy it so much, which means I’ve taken most of the photos I can take there. This time, I was more content just to sit, look, listen and admire the animals. Of course I got my camera out a few times and we were unusually lucky to get quite close to the lions and tigers this time. Often they like to hide away in the shade, but this lion sat peacefully only a few strides from the car!
I was armed with a Canon EOS 600D with Sigma 100-300mm f/4 and a Canon EOS 5 (not 5D) with the less-than-stellar Canon EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6. I enjoyed shooting with the EOS 5 a lot, although I’m not sure if I’d take it to a safari park as my only camera. Maybe next time!
