I was inside a local "rain forest" exhibit, and had to crank up the D70 to ISO 800 in order to shoot with a recently-returned AF-S 300 f/4 wide open handheld.

The first I think is OK - composition could have been better and I'd appreciate an ID - and the second is marginal but I think / hope has a salvaging cuteness factor.

Thanks,

Eric

A bird like yours was posted here a week or two back but I can't remember what the name was. :redface: A very fine image though!

Nice images. Is there anything the 300 can't image in the hands of a competent photographer. I love the isolation on the bird and the baby sloth.

I think the bird is a Victoria crowned pigeon - it's a really nice capture, too. I really agree that a zoo is very good place to practise your technique, plenty of subjects - but some of them very hard to shoot well.
