Tropical Bird

Originally uploaded by RayBanBro66
Not too sure of the species name with this bird.

I used my favorite "bird" lens as I've nicknamed the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4 - 5.6 lens (NON I.S. {image stabilization for non photogs})

I'm normally NOT big on flash photography. But in certain circumstances I thought this shot, as well as a few I shot inside the brand new McNeil Avian Center at the Philadelphia Zoo warranted it.

I'm also now shooting in RAW mode since Corel Paint Photo Shop Ultimate X2 FINALLY upgraded to recognize Canon Rebel XSi RAW convert formatting.
Since I started shooting RAW, it's like a whole new range of possibilities opened up. Whewwwwww.... photogs will appreciate the range in tones....

It's mostly natural lighting within the McNeil Avian Center, located within the Philadelphia Zoo.

If you're a bird lover...and photog... GET THERE YESTERDAY!!! :)

...on bird watch :)

WOW really super nice. I can't even tell that was shot with a flash. It's amazing how it makes a difference. Good eye too. Hughe

Thnx for your comment Hughe. That was the camera flash too, and not my external one. I was pleasantly surprised as well
