200 f4 micro, reflector or flash for shadow fill.

All captive bred except the Three Toe, he was rescued from a pet store, sick and dying we had to pry his beak open and give him cod liver oil, that was 16 years ago I figure he must be at least thirty years old now.

Very nice shots Martin. I too am curious; are these living with you? In terrariums or in the yard?

The three toed looks mean with the red eye.

The cherry headed also looks pretty cool.

She does have that snippy look and isn't as tame as the captive bread turtles but you can scratch here head and she will bump against your feet if she wants attention.

Thanks

turtles, hummers, bugs...what other pets are running around your house? :wink: :wink:

The sun was high in the sky so I played with a reflector to fill in the shadows.


Well there is the two little birds also....

They have terrariums, but also we have an outdoor cage they go out into when the weather is nice and these pictures were taken in the yard or in the outdoor cage.

Thanks Frank.
