#1 and #2 look a little sad, #3 looks as though he is just waiting to get out and #4 is magnificent

The expression on the eagle is great and the elk shot super. It's so sad to see something as magnificent as an eagle unable to fly free.

Super shots! What kind of birds are in #1 & 2? They are so cute. Do you know if the Eagle will ever be able to be released? The Elk is just beautiful, is it injured or did it just hapen to be there?.............Don

nr 1 & 2 are heartbreaking, nr 3 isn't going to be caught anymore, and beware if you would try it. nr 4 just great.

Love them all but if I have to make a choise nr1 wins.

Nice shots - Ronny

these birds can never be released due to their injuries. The notes said that they would not survive. the ones they can release are kept in a separate area not for public viewing so they won't get used to havng people around. not sure what the first two birds were but they are very cute. The elk are kept in the park and have a large area to roam. this one just happened to be out in public viewing. there were also some bison there but the sun was right behind them and even though I had a hood on and a polarizer, they were hard too photo. here is one:
