Big cats of Al-Ain Zoo

by Shahul Khalid April. 24, 2017 1312 views

Last week we had a extended holiday along with the weekend. My parents are here for a visit, and my son and nephew are excited to go out as always and see new places, so we decided to visit the zoo. The place Al-Ain is 2 hour drive from Dubai, we took our lunch and hit the road. We reached there late in the afternoon so we had only limited time. Once we reached there, we went directly to the big cats section. Kids were excited to see the beast live in front, which they used to see on a TV. I just got a few shots with my camera through the toughened glass, auto focus was not behaving good, so I had to do manual focus.

The King


When the Queen arrives, even the King has to step down

Do not disturb mode

Ready for action, but out of focus though :(

I particularly like Picture #3. I have been to that zoo as well, so I know about the toughened glass you are talking about :)
