Thanks so much Kathleen, Maria G., Maria C., Susan and Karen! Appreciate all the comments very much...I was especially happy to capture this guy as I was on my way out of the zoo and I noticed the light setting in the west happened to catch him on his perch...I had to shoot through the chain fence and zoomed all the way out at 400mm. I don't think without this particular lighting, it would have worked. Thanks to BP judges for the finalist selection as well! #7561658
