Some stunning looking birds

Discussion in 'Birds' started by johnaalex, Aug 15, 2009.

  1. First day of my trip to South Africa and we stayed at Palazzo Hotel in Johannesburg. The hotel is part of a massive complex along with a casino and a very good bird garden.

    Shots taken using my Sigma 150 2.8.

    Now that first one is just plain weird, disturbing even. Great shots, though.
     
  3. Oh why did God create such an ugly bird (#1)?! I guess beauty is really in the eye of the beholder. It looks so awkward :p 
     
  4. Lovely set. I would be in heaven at that hotel.
     
  5. Hey - evolution has a lot to answer for! Don't take it out on the poor bird :biggrin:!


    If you like birds then South Africa would be heaven for you, let alone this place - thanks for the comment.
