San Francisco Zoo

 I think the Flamingos were the most difficult to shoot compositionally of all the animals at the zoo.

We all see those wonderful shots of Flamingos and think WOW! how cool. Now I get to take one of those awesome shots. Forget it. :P I probably need a little more patient. The combination of varying lighting, movement, and a tight crowd of birds made getting a good composition difficult. But hey that's what makes us learn. Gotta work for it.

My neck hurts just watching these guys.

WOW! not only is it a beautiful shot, but you captured him at just the right moment smile you must have had some patience smile well done!
John Eagle: Thanks, I took a lot of shots and waited and left and came back. At least with the zoo one can walk around and get other shots if the timing is not right and then come back later.
