Hi everyone, well Greg, Brittaney and I had a great time at the Six Flags Safari. Its over 300 acres of wild animals roaming free on the grounds. We took the VIP tour. Had a guide and traveled in a Land Rover out among the animals. We were even allowed to get out of the car in the more safer areas and get within inches of some of the animals. This shot is one of my favorites because I was so close I could touch the bird, in fact I had to back up to get this shot as it was too close with my 400mm in hand. Stay tuned as I have lots of shots I will be showing from this trip.
