Yes real nice Lester, they give me that warm weather feeling and since it's been mostly crappy here I like it!

Wonderful set Lester, it is neat to see the birds of other areas than your own on your own soil.

Very cool, Lester! That last one sort of looks like a miniaturized Shoebill...

Nice job hiding the fact that they are captive. A very nice set. Love the variety, colors and clarity!

Beautiful images Lester. I enjoy shooting in a bird sanctuary or zoo as for once it's relatively easy to get close to them.

What a fascinating group of exotics you captured Lester!
The Conure is the most brightly colored, but I love the overall coloring of the Lovebirds.
Thanks for sharing.
