A profile shot of a Red and Yellow Barbet at the San Antonio Zoo. After seeing the Bearded Barbet in Europe, I was excited to come back and see this guy right at the local zoo. Such a gorgeous, colorful bird.
Here's a shot which gets a bit back to my photographic roots. Clouded leopards, my dearest, most beloved photo subjects. This was taken way back in September of last year, but due to the overload of Europe photos I had, I'm only just now getting down to uploading it. Much more to come.
Here we have a red-ruffed lemur at the San Antonio Zoo. This picture quite literally took my breath away when I shot it -- not many of my shots do, so that should tell you a bit about my opinion of it. Hope you like it just as much.
This was taken on San Juan Island, on the south shore mentioned in a few previous pictures. This is by far the closest I got to an eagle my entire trip to Washington. This individual was sitting on a bare tree branch sticking up out of nowhere against a pretty nice sunset.
I subscribed to the 1-step-at-a-time method (from way far away) over the course of about twenty minutes until I got close enough to take some shots -- and until he noticed my presence. All would have been fine except some idiots decided to walk their dog right up behind him and scared him up.
He flew toward me, if that exonerates me at all, and I got some really stellar pictures that I'll be sharing soon. This was the first in the series.
Odd that when they clipped this Scarlet Macaw's wing, they decided to leave one feather untouched. Maybe that gives them some limited flight abilities so they can get from branch to branch but not out of the open air exhibit? idklol
This is the last shot I'll be submitting of the Bald Eagle. It's pretty similar to the first shot I submitted ([link]), so I'm not sure I'll keep both in my featured gallery. We'll see how it turns out.
