That's a very pretty bird. Nice work on the exposure, capturing the colors and detail. Is this at the aviary?

Yes. They would have been preyed on immediately if they had been in the wild in Hong Kong. The aviary is called Sir Edward Yolde Aviary and is on theHong Kong Island.

Beautiful bird and nice job on the exposures wk7leung. For some reason I'm drawn to that last frame... must be the perspective andDOF toward the back of the bird.

#3 was taken with a manual Tokina 300mm at f2.8. The dof is really short. I like the bokeh, no exception to other people's.

I always have the feeling that I should step back a little bit to reduce the cut on the bird so that it can be smaller and that some foreground can be included to make the shot more interesting from the photographic point of view. This is absolutelypossible shooting in the aviary where birds are pretty friendly to visitors. But the fact isthe habit ofmoving closer always sets in as one is indulged in getting more details of the bird being shot. The consequence is: the more one shoots in the aviary, the more one finds it difficult to shoot in the wild as the closer one gets to the bird, the less likely one can get a successful shot as the bird will have already flown away before one gets things ready for a shoot.

Thanks for viewing and giving comments.

I agree, all of your shots of this bird are beautiful. But, that last one has real punch. It does look 3D. Very nice.

Yeah, a real punch. That feeling was even more sensational looking at the bird thru the viewfinder. Thanks for viewing and giving comments.
