Outstanding shot Alan- especially as it was taken at a zoo. Shots are usually spoiled by people/fences/wire/glass but this looks as if it was taken in the wild. Quality.TongueTongue

That is usually my trick Alan, forgetting to make a note of their names. What i tend to do is take a photo of the name sign Smile

Lovely colours on this bird Smile

Nice shot
