NOW...please remember, these were taken with a lens entirely new to me, and a situation entirely new to me (indoor, low-light photography)...so the usual disclaimer stands redboubled...these are documentation shots of exotic birids, not great photographs of them!
Also, the wire of the bird cages got in the way and you can see them as stripes down the pictures...there was no way I could avoid that!
Here's the Bateleur Eagle (its shadow on the wall behind makes the left-hand side look a little weird):
The Mottled Owl:
The Tawny Frogmouth:
The Hyacinth Macaws, the picture doesn't do justice to their lovely deep colour:
The White-Cheeked Turaco-- this bird was as clownish as its appearance suggests and was playing about actively all over the enclosure!:
The Channel-Billed Pelican:
The Spectacled Owl:
The Superb Starling (so called because of its iridiscent plumage...apparently the person who named it hasn't seen a Peacock or Monal Pheasant!:
I got FAR better pictures of butterflies yesterday...the Tamron lens works really well as a macro lens! Will post them next week...!
