Very beautiful. I was photographing one of these last week at Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls. The bird untied my shoe laces haha. You really captured the majesty of the bird in this shot.

Thank you. I went to Bird Kingdom last year and saw the Pigeon there. He was very tame. Managed to get a picture of one of the Scarlet Ibis while I was there. I'd love to go back. (:

Ahh I can never get a great picture of the scarlet ibis...I like to use a macro lens and they aren't as comfortable being close to humans as some of the other birds.

My problem was they were constantly pecking at the ground. There wasn't a lot of light at the time so a fast shutter speed wasn't really an option. Finally managed to get one staying still though. I'd love to go back there with a telephoto lens sometime and try to get a better shot.

That's a pretty good shot considering what you went through haha. Looks like a handsome bird in that photo and the background is nice too.
Yeah, always great when everything is just drenched in natural sunlight. I've been really working at using manual focus to get everything to be super clear. I hate having my ISO any higher than 100 and then it's difficult to have a fast shutter speed and buhhh...you know what happens haha. Telephoto lenses are fun but I have a difficult time adjusting to them because I am so used to Macro. I wish there was a telephoto lens that can do everything a macro lens can do.

I'd like to get a macro lens as well for insect photography and such. My lens won't focus as closely as I would like it to. The macro lens I had my eye on is about $500 and the telephoto is almost $1500. D:

ah yeah that sounds about right... luckily for me my dad gave me my macro lens for Christmas a couple of years ago. I have a telephoto lens too but it's range isn't as long as I need it to be so I don't use it too often... Haha I am probably one of the only people who takes a macro lens to a zoo but once in a while you get close enough to get some decent shots. When you finally get a macro lens it will be super addicting. It's amazing how much detail they capture. I was taking photos of everything just to see what they looked like haha.
