    Good shots, my favourite type of birds. The barn owl looks like it's laughting .I don't think I would allow a child's hand so close to a raptor's mouth.

    But mommy wanted to take this "sweet picture" with her phone camera!

    Personally, I like the second best. You rarely see a bird shaking its feathers like that - then frozen into a picture. And I like the colours in that one very much, too!!! Or is it not shaking? But waiting for some "signal"?

    Those are amazing! I wish i could shoot pictures with details and clarity like you, and You really have an eye on people and their expressions too. My favorite is no 4.

    By the way, regards to your wife. I guess shes with you now in Canada.

    All the best.

    Killer shots Raymond. All of these are just very well done. I would say the first is my favorite.

    Nice subjects, the straps on the birds are very saddening, though :(
    Fantastic focus & DOF on all of these !!
    Great shots.

    Thank Miki and Photogal

    I hate the straps too, but they are out in the open instead of locked up in a small cage.. they are well fed, and groomed.. and seem to be content. I do feel for all amimals in zoos, but millions of people have a chance to go face to face with rare and endangered species, and creating pubilic awareness is so important towards their survival.

    thanks again for everyones kind words

    Have to say the first and third are my favorites. Both because of the expression and details in the feathers.
