Not so wild wildlife (at the zoo)

I just purchased a 50-200 mm f/2.8-3.5 zoom for my Olympus E-1 (equivalent FOV to a 100-400 mm lens in the 35 mm world). For grins I took it to the Chaffee Zoological Gardens in Fresno today to try it out on the critters. Here is a selection of images, starting with one of the elephants.


P.S. Christine--my wife and I are taking a trip to Chicago in April (she has a conference). I am hoping to take a side trip to Mattheissen State Park to look for those waterfalls you posted a few months ago.
