Too many Zoo images here for my liking. There are some nice natural images for sure, but the overall Zoo effect spoils the collection.

Love these beautiful pictures. Would love to create a photo collage with some of these pictures. Could you please let me know. I would love to do a grid collage with a caption so that it could be used as desktop background. I create photo collages as a service at collagist.com and would love to share it with anybody interested in using these photo collages.

Beatiful photos! One of the pictures of the African Crowned Crane was labeled as a peacock. I’m pretty sure the last picture is an elk, not a deer. But it is a fabulous picture.
