Those of you in the midwest know this first hand...we've had a weee bit of snow this week. So I took advantage of a day off work and took my shiny new 70-200 f/2.8L to the Indianapolis Zoo. Lo and behold, I was the only....I mean the ONLY paying customer there. I had the run of the place! The dolphin trainers took me up onto the stage for the 10:30 dolphin show. It's not really a show if the only member of the audience is also on stage....so we had a training period with the dolphins and I got to interact and take some really great shots. All the other displays we're mine for the shooting.... You simply can't beat a deserted zoo when it comes to getting a feel for a new lens!
