Female Mandrill

By RubberBullets
A nice quiet (without my 5 year old) trip to the zoo today, and a chance to try my trusty old Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 on the D200 for the first time in anger.

Took lots of pictures, a lot of which were discarded on first look through, but this one I did like.

The much improved noise levels of the D200 over my old D70 have made shots like this possible. This was taken at iso 1000 and although a 1:1 crop wasn't very pretty enough detail has been preserved I think.
