Cheap admission at Edinburgh Zoo today, so I snapped up the chance to do a spot of photography, although I don't like the idea of animals in captivity..

Now I have a bit of webspace, I'll try to get a few more albums up on here, as I have a massive backlog of pics I'd like to share.

Also need to find out if it is possible to link these pics to the full size images, or if I'd need to provide the links under each pic for those who want to see them in their full glory?

Yep... http://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/animals/ ... ldDog.html

Although it is the worst pic out of the bunch from a photographer's standpoint, I thought I'd include it anyway, since it's quite an interesting species.

Indeed, there is definitely a resemblance in its camouflage. I think foxes sit somewhere between dogs and cats too. I'm sure somewhere along the line some interbreeding has taken place, that's surely how new species start, although I'm no biologist.

Wots, I wasn't out to correct anyone ;) but I guess it's good to learn something new.. I wouldn't have known what they were either, if it weren't for the zoo map that was handed out.

Watcha.


Best way to is to have your own galleries on Smeggy's ( like myself, No Chance and LN have on the left sidebar )

Send me text in the following format ( no spaces in filenames )


[code]
Title: <Gallery Title>
Description: <Gallery Description>
Author: <Photogpraher's name>
Date: <date>

<pic URL>, <comment>
<pic URL>, <comment>
<pic URL>, <comment>
<pic URL>, <comment>
[/quote]

and I'll create a gallery for ya. The Smeggy's code automatically creates thumbnails.
