The first was a "Domestic Bird" photo. When I read the challenge I saw *birds in a cage* and since there was no way I could cage Fred the Eagle.... I loaded up the kids and we headed to the zoo.
It was a great day - everyone else had school... so there were only about 300 people there. My kids had the day off due to ACT testing for the 11th grade.
We had so much fun and really enjoyed the day.
My Bird that I decided to enter was this Cassowary. They are native to Australia and New Guinea.
The blurred spots are actually cage wires - so this was a fun challenge to learn - how to shoot through the fence. Now I want to go try it on a baseball game.!
This was our Runner up - the boys ( okay really it is me, but I am using them) think these birds look like they should be in a Jurassic Park Movie.
Then Next Challenge was "The Golden Hour"
I caught my Man riding the fences as the sun was going down. I think it turned out pretty cool and Phil the horse wasn't goofing off..... he is a big goof off - that one!
And this was my runner up photo = the sun through the tree. The sun helped was out the dirt spots where our grass hasn't grown - I liked that!
