Hi Brian
Very nice shot, great detail, was this bird captive or did you track it down in the wild? Very nice.

Thanks for the comments! Unfortunately, this photo was taken in captivity....the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA. I prefer shooting out in the wild but I also didn't want to pass up the opportunity to get a close-up. Thanks again! #4816999
