    This lovely bird was at the Mayaguez, P.R. Zoo. It took me about 45 minutes to take this shoot because this bird moves a lot... It was a hard one but time payed off...

    Very nice.
    I guess it's not easy but would prefer to have it's eyes more focused.

    Yes, it's not easy!... I was lucky to get that close to perfect focus. Can't use the camera in automatic focus in this situation. There was a metalic fence between me and the bird... on top of that he was always moving around. Very hard to get a shot of him looking straight...

    Thanks to all for your comments!!!
