    After seeing LP's recent post I thought 'wow thats nice, hang on, I have a shot of that exact same bird'. And here it is. I don;t really shot at zoo's etc these days as prefer the challenge of the wild, however you won't be seeing oen of these wild in the UK so I don't mind the exception haha

    This bird is BIG!! When it flies in over the audience it seems all the bigger!!

    Wow, great shot Silverpenguin! I like the angle, and how you can see all its feathers/markings on its back/top part of the wings.

    Thanks for the comments all. As for shooting the back, I love trying to get shots like that just as they turn. You get some really nice detail if the sun is in hte right place and it makes a nice change from the usual belly shots :)
