Week 11 – 073/365
So I am falling behind again, despite having (some) more time. I’m trying to get used to a normal sleep schedule again and trying to figure out what is happening next week. I’m supposed to watch my brother while my family is away, but I may have to leave for some medical reasons. Anyways, now that this is cleared up…
These birds are all from the tropical section of the zoo. I took a lot more pictures, but I didn’t wait for my camera body & lens to warm up to the environment, so there was a ton of condensation. Unfortunately, because of this, about 50 pictures I took of fantastic birds came out 100% black.
This guy and his buddy were particularly devious. One dived at my head close enough so I felt feathers on my face, and this one landed in front of me, cocking his head and ‘grinning’ at me until I left.
Just a small parrot-like bird. It was a bit away and didn’t seem to care for being captured on camera. It left soon after this shot.
This last one was very patient. My camera had fogged up again and was not taking images as fast as it previously was. I think I got about 20 shots using auto focus and manual focus. He flew right by me at one point to perch closer, but it was too close for the lens I had on. There was no room to move back and he had flown away by the time I had switched lenses.
