At the S.F. Zoo

Try as he might, this giant anteater seemed to enjoy the attention and loved having his photo taken, but proved a very difficult subject to photograph well due to the "black dog effect". 

Giant Anteater

The dark hair (fur?) with light tips, the way it shimmers in the light, and obscures features are probably great camoflage in the wild, but make a challenging photographic subject.

Taken with the Hexanon 135, almost certainly wide-open at F3.2.

At the S.F. Zoo

We visited the S.F. Zoo recently - one of my favorite locations.  I've never come up dry for subject matter and a rewarding experience - especially as it relates to the apes, they never cease to amaze.
