  2. beautiful shots Roger., very well done... nothing wrong with posting images of captive birds, I like the fact that you identified that these were taken at a zoo,.. and they are excellent shots.

    Thanks Warren. I'm happy with them, I guess, but I feel it was like shooting fish in a pail.

    Photos. Simply awesome. you have some amazing shots! I'd love to spend a year, or two with you...

    Nice Shots Roger. Did you have any problems bringing in your camera? I thought I heard someplace that they didn't allow pro gear because people were selling photos they took there. I have been meaning to take the kids there for a while now.
