Proud

Photo of the Week by tommyt

Bali Myna Birds,..visited the Bioparc in Fuengirola, Spain recently and spent a good time watching these two Bali Mynas. I was taken back by their beauty and proudness and thought they deserved a viewing on here. Hope you like them as much as i do.

A tour de force, and now, winner of the Reubens Gallery of Boids Medal. POTW for sure, if there is a God. Like a lot more than a lot.

It stood out from the thumbnails as something special before I'd even viewed it. Nice one!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for viewing and commenting everyone, much appreciated. This was taken with the 18-135mm lens Roy on its first outing abroad, having just recently been bought. This is now my walk-about lens and my bag is now a lot lighter to carry when on holiday along with my Tamron 17-50mm and K3-11. Best Regards ..tommyt

stunning bird beautifully captured. Shame about the lighting on the left, not much you could do about that without frightening the birds away. Very sharp indeed.

congratulations
