Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge seemed like a good opportunity to share these shots that I captured at Brookfield Zoo the other day. As any of you who have been following these posts for any amount of time will know, there is no way I’m going in the bird houses at the zoo. But large birds, outside, are not quite so terrifying, even if the bald eagle did give me quite the glare.
The peacock had lost most of its tail feathers but still looked very colorful and appeared to be sporting some rather snazzy legwear.
Two iconic birds of beauty
They are rather handsome aren’t they.
These photos are stunning. Excellent entry. Thanks so much for sharing them 😀
Thank you, Cee! And many thanks for continuing to host this challenge.
Wow! Magnificent birds captured in truly wonderful photos. Thank you.
Thank you! The eagle is probably my favorite bird at the zoo. I’ve yet to see one in the wild, at least close enough to capture with the camera.
Wow, that eagle shot is fierce!
Wonderful close-up of this majestic eagle. Loved seeing all the feathery details. ❤
Thank you, Olga!
Excellent pictures for the theme, Sue!
Many thanks, Indira!
I love the eagle image.
Thanks, Tom! Luckily the long lens does a good job of washing out the intervening wire fence.
I could see a ghostly impression of the fence in one shot. Cameras are very clever these days.
Great pictures – birds are hard to photograph (at least for me).
Thank you so much for visiting and for your kind comment.
Remarkable images of these two birds! The clarity of the eagle is great!
Thank you, Amy!
