I hope you liked my first post about my visit to the Guadalajara Zoo. This second post is about the birds. I love their bright colors and soft feathers.
Taking pictures of them is not easy but I think I got lucky and have some good shots to share.
I was very impressed by the peacock. I’ve seen quite a few in some places in Mexico but I rarely see them showing off their feathers. This guy was trying to impress a female and I think it even posed for my camera. Their personalities might be as cocky as they look.
I remember when I used to hunt pheasants for dinner back when I was living in Hungary. It’s been a while since the last time I saw one. They males have beautiful feather colors, the females are just brown. I remember they taste great served in soups.
The predator birds are the most fascinating to me. The look in their faces, the way they stand. They are great looking birds.
Oh the mexican eagle. A sad metaphor of our country these days to see this photo of this great eagle, symbol of our nation, behind a fence.
Pink flamingos are fun. They remind me of ballet dancers with the way the move and their leg extensions.
Their balance impresses me, how can they stand in one leg for so long and never fall down? I think I even saw one sleeping in that position.
There were many other birds that I couldn’t get the chance to take a good shot at, in a photographic way of course. Next post about the Guadalajara Zoo will be about the reptiles.
