Developing photographic techniques can be difficult, and there are often few places at home that give a good opportunity to master techniques. A trip to the Melbourne Zoo gave some inspiration, and I came across the Mandrill.This colorful creature almost enjoyed showing off (in my opinion) and alternated between turning towards me and away from me whilst I was trying to take its photograph. I did manage to get a few shots which highlight the magnificent colours of the Mandrill's face.The images themselves were taken with a Nikon D5300, and a Tamron 150-600mm Macro.
I visited the Melbourne Zoo in August, and found so many creatures big and small interesting. The Lemur seemed to be having a good time watching everyone come in, they are quite alert creatures from what I could see.
