    Thanks, Bobo. There were even a couple of Harpy Eagles in this place. I wished I'd have a 300mm lens, as they were too high and distant for my 55mm lens. I'm sure you would like them (considering you love shooting the Ospreys). Regards...

    Otavio,
    The pictures are great, with many details and beautiful and properly saturated colors .
    I especially liked the photo 5 (the hummingbird).

    OH WOW! I am seething with jealously.

    Last time I tried to get pictures of birds at the zoo and they refused to position themselves anywhere there weren't obstacles in the way. Alhthough I highly doubt mine woulld have shown 1/4 of the detail yours did.

    Just breathtaking!

    Thanks, Gretchen. I'm glad you liked them! The birds at this park were really friendly and helped me a lot to get this job done, by allowing me to get pretty close (about a couple of meters). I am sure you could do even better! Cheers...

    Beautiful work. Especially #1 and #3, which is one I had never seen or heard of before. What a great aviary at that zoo with such fantastic subjects. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello, Ucci. Thanks for viewing and I'm glad you liked it. It is really a great place. Just for your information this is the bird park of Iguassu falls (http://www.parquedasaves.com.br/v2/ing.htm). I strongly recommend it if you ever come to Brazil, as it is located in front of Iguassu falls park, (by the way, another "must see"). Kindest regards...
