A blurry one of Matt and his sister Hayley, but just look at the picturesque landscape you get going to the Zoo via cablecar!
I use the opportunity of being at the zoo to use my 70-200mm VR lens (I usually walk around with my kit 18-55mm), and am pleased with the results. At the very least, the weight is enough to make it feel almost like a different camera!
