    Hi All

    Here are the first few pics from my trip to Australia. Due to computer problems I am way behind on processing these.

    These were all taken at the Mebourne zoo with a Canon Rebel Xt, 70-200 f4 L + Canon 1.4x TC, on a tripod.

    C&C very much welcome!!



    1) Peekaboo

    Boy, what feather detail in the last! Very nice colour on that bird, too! :D

    "And yes! I'm looking at you!" :biggrin:

    I hope you get round to editing more of your Australia photos any time soon now and that your computer problems are now solved for good! Wanna see more!!!

    Gah, one of the few bird species where the female is more colorful (the red and purple bird). The Eclectus Parrot. So pretty!

    Thanks All!! I appreciate the nice comments!

    LaFoto, I only sharpened a bit after converting to jpg and resizing for web on all of these. I am very happy with the lense, to say the least!

    Cheers
