    Here are some pics of a bird from the Melbourne Zoo. I'm not sure of the bird name, but i suspect a King Fisher, or something similar.

    The sun was brutally harsh but I did the best I could.

    This is a heron or sorts ... and if Ray were still here, he'd immediately know its proper name.
    The light was VERY hard to deal with, indeed, actually I'm afraid it was quite a bit against you (from a photographer's point of view), though all the other visitors to the zoo certainly enjoyed that bright and sunny day!

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Even the first shot has the fence in the background, but it shows up more like noise, so it isn't as distracting.

    Cheers
