There is nothing better than trying out new Nikon products on wildlife at the Bronx Zoo. Nikon’s Mike Corrado came by today, bringing along a just-released Coolpix S800c with 16.0 megapixels and Android technology. I used it to take this photo of him meeting our giraffe. He transmitted it from the S800c camera—immediately—to his Facebook.

The Nikon D4 is part of Corrado’s camera kit, too. I tried the D4 with a Nikkor 200-400mm lens and got every drop of this Caribbean flamingo’s bird bath.

Ostrich photobombers.

Even animals seem to like picture crashing as these ratites (large, flightless birds) photobombed my recent giraffe assignment at the Bronx Zoo. I worked with our keepers for a long time to get our entire giraffe herd in one frame. At the magic moment, OSTRICH PHOTOBOMB.

It went on for an hour, and they never gave up.
