    I took these pictures yesterday at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I felt that she deserved her own thread. This gorgeous girl was just sunning herself on a branch right next to the window, pretty as you please. I took about fifteen shots of her (unfortunately, I had no film left by this point, so they were all digital); these are the five that I liked the best. C&C greatly appreciated. Enjoy! :)

    4) Close crop to emphasize that razor-sharp beak.

    5) Slight noise reduction using Neat Image (God, I'm already in love with that program :lol: ).

    How could you thus crawl almost right into her?
    The last two are SOOOO close-up! :shock: Wow! The last one is quite impressive, close as you are taking us up to this magnificent bird!

    She was less than a foot from the glass, and I do have a 3x optical zoom on my digital camera, crappy as it is. :lol: Thank you for the feedback. :)

    :lol: Thanks! I enjoyed photographing her. She wasn't at all inclined to move from that sunny spot. :)

    Wow, 'extreme closeup'....guess that last pic is the last sight the fish sees before being scooped up.

    ([​IMG] Ignore him... I need all the encouragement I can get. He's just jealous that there isn't an otter movie out. Penguins rule...they absolutely stole the show in Madagascar too)
