426th Show & Tell Competition: A DAY AT THE ZOO

Post Mon Jan 09, 2017 1:02 pm


The topic of this week’s challenge is a day at the zoo.

Quite a few people do not hold zoos in high regard, arguing that it is not natural for wild animals to be kept in enclosures in urban areas. While there is some truth to it, much depends on how the actual zoo is set up and managed. In the last couple of years, I have visited zoos where animals enjoy fantastic conditions and caring zookeepers. Furthermore, many zoos contribute to nature conservation – all too soon we may find ourselves in a situation where the only place where you can see the Amur tiger, the black rhino or the mountain gorilla will be in a zoological garden.

In this week’s challenge I invite everyone to share their best pictures taken at the zoo.

With the zoo being the key theme, I would like to set two boundary conditions: (i) no pictures of house pets please, even if you own a boa constrictor or a tiger hamster :twisted: and (ii) no pictures from a genuine safari or a wildlife photoshoot. Both of the above are interesting topics, each deserving its own S&T challenge, but they are outside of the scope of this week’s challenge.

Other than that, please feel free to interpret the zoo theme as you see fit. Animal portraits, people and animals interacting, fascinated kids, a big aquarium, etc.
Some examples for inspiration are below:










Submissions will be closed on Monday the 16th of January 2017 at 13:02:29 UTC

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
2. If you win the Show and Tell Contest and cannot run the next one, please notify the person running the contest immediately, so they can notify the second place winner.

4. When the contest ends, please post the winners within 24-48 hours. (If you keep an eye on entries during the week, you will have a good idea of your favorites by the time the contest ends, and be able to more quickly post your winners.)
5. If you know you will not be able to post a contest, judge it, and post winners, within these timeframes, please do not start one. Instead, notify the person running the contest, so they can pass it on to the second place winner.

Jurong Bird Park, Singapore. An amazing place to see diverse birds of the tropics. The birds had huge caged areas and domes to fly around, with natural settings inside.
