Chester Zoo On Film: Part 4

Part four of my trip to Chester Zoo, a while back now possibly a whole month ago, all taken on Canon AE-1 Programme with 50mm lens and using Agfa Vista Plus 200 film.

This was one of the smaller one’s, the biggest was too far away to get a good shot of. I like this though, especially as he’d poked his tongue out as I squeezed the shutter.

It sprayed over it, clearly marking it’s territory and moments late sprayed into the face of a small child as well. Now that was funny.
