Hi All,

I just loaded these two on Flickr to post at another place, so I figured I might as well post em here too.

This guy is a permanent resident at the local Nature Center as he was a rescue, and only has one eye. . . but is still a handsome devil. The cage is about 5 feet away from the waist-high fence, so I had to lean over as far as possible to throw the cage bars as far out of focus as possible. You can see that the bar intrudes a bit behind the eye, but really only if you're looking for it.

Here's a 100% crop of the eye area. if you look really closely, you can see my reflection in the center of his eye

Do you like the lens?????

The bar/fence/net problem is a nuisance, but you managed to handle it quite well in this shot.

Both are very cool. You managed the fence much better than my visit to the zoo last month.

Great shot - and fine work blurring out the cage details while capturing great detail in his feathers. Thanks for sharing!
