Been on the road for the third time with my new zoom lens, the Tamron SP 150-600mm. And now I am starting to get the hang of it. This time, at Naturzoo in Rheine, I took nice pictures. Finally I was able to take the photos, for which I previously lacked zoom. For example of the tigers in this zoo. And today they also cooperated nicely. Wonderful!

I still have a problem with the weight of the camera with lens. I have to grow muscle and / or invent something else. I’m still puzzling with that.

In Rheine they have 5 beautiful Sumatran tigers. Father, mother and 3 cubs born this year. Two ladies and a gentleman. They’re no longer small, but they are so beautiful. At the moment you can see who the mother, son and daughters are by their big seize. But on the photos I have seen that you can also tell by the shape of the stripes. On the photo you simply cannot see how big they are.

This is mother Naga, she misses a piece of her ear. A beautiful tiger.

These are the daughters Zuma and Tipah. They often keep each other company and play together. To see the differences I mainly look at the lines above the right eye (for the viewer left).

Mother Naga does everything to stay in shape. Where the nails are sharpened. A tough lady!

The daughters do not yet think of tough. Or it doesn’t really work yet. This belongs more in the category: So cute, what a sweetheart 🙂
