African Lions at the Brookfield Zoo
So, in a previous post I promised to add more photos from my visit to Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo (est. 1934). This evening I am posting several more images, this time of the resident African lion pair. Isis (f) and Zenda (m) arrived at the zoo in 2008; Isis is about 7-8 years old now and Zenda is about 6-7 years old.
All photos with a Canon EOS 7D with 75-300mm, hand-held at 300mm.
EXIF: 1/500 s, f/7.10, ISO 800
EXIF: 1/4000 s, f/7.10, ISO 250
EXIF: 1/400 s, f/7.10, ISO 200
EXIF: 1/400 s, f/5.60, ISO 125
EXIF: 1/400s, f/5.60, ISO 800
I’ll end today’s post with this one. I’m sure all you gals out there will say this is a typical male pose. No doubt, Zenda pretty much feels he is the king of this domain. Not sure if Isis agrees.

What shall I post next? Lots of giraffes, wild dogs, wolves, and bald eagles to come. And, I have a lot more images of spring in central Illinois. I’ll be back soon.
