Creepy Bird by ~archistock stood out to me on one of my browses through the stock gallery - crisp and clear and just screaming out to be used in a dark or surreal piece of work.

Creepy Bird



OMG! A DD! Thanks to Fiona (Hanratty-Stock) for the feature. And thanks to everyone for the faves and kind comments! I hope people will find good uses for it. Please check out my main photography account here [link] if you would like to see more of my images. Thanks again!

Yes, it's a real bird. Image was shot a few months ago at the San Francisco Zoo. It was in a walk in netted enclosure so no bars between me and the bird allowing for a clear shot. The bird enclosure is only a few feet away from where the unfortunate Tiger mauling took place.
