Tiger Cub, 10 weeks old, at San Francisco Zoo #sftigercub

Second trip to see the new tiger cub (Jillian), now 10-1/2 weeks old, photos taken through *plexiglass* windows at San Francisco Zoo.  Visted a few other zoo residents too.  April 26, 2013.

  I'll go at least one more time for the cub's antics and will bring the Canon Rebel XT + zoom to get better larger images.
  Used the little Canon SX260 again.   Did take shots of other animals but later on that...

  Here's a Flickr photography discussion about trying to get clear pictures thru' the zoo's pexiglass windows (no meshing in tiger exhibit).

I've added new shots of San Francisco Zoo's tiger cub, who's 6 months old now, in a Facebook Album Log (August 2013) until I can put them here later.  They're viewable in large thumbnails there so that you don't need to click through for larger photos to get a sense of the visit, and this link works for non-Facebook members too.

To see the PBase.co images that are 1024 pixels wide (or larger) for the thumbnails below, *click* on 'ORIGINAL' option below the first photo that comes up after you click on a thumbnail; otherwise, and that setting will stay for the session.  It defaults to 800 pixels wide.


Click on any thumbnail to get a larger version.  Then click on "Next" or "Previous" to see other ones.
  (A left- or right-arrow keypress also works if your screen is large enough.)



*** ( For FULL SCREEN: PC's, press/toggle F11.  Mac's, maximize screen. ) ***
