The MES Zoo is located in Parker City, Indiana (http://www.meszoo.com/). It's a small zoo with a great collection of animals: a lion, 3 tigers, leopards, cougars, bears, monkeys, lemurs, a camel, a full collection of deer, buffalo, and many others.
The zoo is situated around a beautiful 100 year old farm house that holds tens of thousands of lights during Christmas seaon.
When photographing zoo animals, it pays to have some stretch in your lens. Most of these were taken with my 70-200 mm f2.8 (L) which provides plenty of flexiblity for distance, but also takes crytal clear photos.
