    Wow nice, I like the colors you used here nice and natural not too over saturated, What a neat little fellow.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kane - bit of a captive subject though :P
    Thanks :) I try to aim for natural colour as much as possible. Oversaturation just doesn't do it for me.

    Yeah some of those CSI TV shows crank it way to much, I like a natural but not boring/flat look

    Had me worried for a minute at first glance, thought you shot this out bush.
    Forgot about the Zoo.
    Great capture with nice fine detail.
