So yesterday my girlfriend, her brother and I decide to take advantage of the beautiful day and go visit the Detroit Zoo....

This guy swooped down across the Australian Outback display over my head and pounced on a bunny from about 300 yard away. Way more entertaining than the kangaroos!

Nice shots.

The silverback is a little hot. You might want to reduce EV (if you shot in RAW), or at least some curves if you shot JPG.

#7 looks like a female Wood Duck.

yeah I really blew the exposure on his silvery back - which is why I cropped that shot as much as I did :(

Nice shots especially that shot of the hawk. Great capture.
