I found that these little guys make great models while spending a day at the Baltimore Zoo. I also found out that lugging a D30 with Battery grip and a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 APO around all day gets tiring.

Wonderful shot! Love the sentiment. It was worth the effort of carrying all that gear. (Small suggestion - get a cart at an office supply store - so much easier to pull than to carry)

I'm giving this a 9. If for nothing else than for being very emotive, not to mention about the cutest thing ever. It is however a fine picture also. The shallow DOF really makes me focus on the rodents. I might have cut out the bottom foreground though where its blurry. Very well done!

Very good color pallette. Subjects stand out well against the background.

Are they really fighting? The one on the left looks like he's in rough shape! Round 2, fight!

what a fabulous title! you cracked me up and there are bonus marks for that! Plus I love the warm tones of this picture..I know its centered and that's often a "no-no" but it works for me!

What grungy looking prairie dogs. Them not your fantastic capture of them.
04/23/2003 02:46:30 AM
reminds me of a postcard by Robert Pisko. Similar pose of these critters, but b&w.
04/23/2003 02:22:47 AM
The thumbnail looked very promising, the full pic even better! Even though the main subject is centered, going against the rules I am still giving it a 10.
