Birds of the Dallas Zoo

A few particularly crisp photos of a Macaw and a Bald Eagle taken at the Dallas Zoo with a Nikon D5100 using the kit lens (VR 55-300x)

These are a few of many animals from the Dallas Zoo that will be featured here in the coming weeks.  Animals are one of my favorite subjects to photograph, however a lot of luck comes into play in getting the perfect timing.  My current technique is to shoot as many photos as possible in rapid succession and hope it improves my chances.

  1. So majestic… a real pity the bald eagle only has one eye…. can probably still see better than us humans….
