    From the same trip as the tigers - and these were definatly the best of the day - oddly they were also the first shots - though I thinke being able to get right up close helped a lot!

    All shots taken with canon 400D, canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS + 1.4 Teleconverter

    Neat shots. That third picture looks like he's already had a few crackers and letting some gas go :)

    Good detail and bokeh :)

    I really like the first shot ... Background is pleasant and getting the shoulder colors in along with some green in the BG really help this shot

    Hmm, tough call. I guess I'd go with the first one because of the extra colour from the wing feathers and I kind of like the closed beak look. My only reservation is that the subject is placed so centrally in that shot.

    Beautiful colours, and nice sharp focus on the eye
