Avian exploration

Well I've been off-line for a few days because we decided to take a little mini-vacation up in Santa Barbara. We thought we would surprise the kids by taking them to the Santa Barbara zoo and then when we were done, suggesting that we go to our hotel. They were super excited and it turned into a great couple of days and some nice time away. Contrary to popular belief it is not always sunny in Santa Barbara, and the overcast skies made for some nice picture taking conditions. I particularly enjoyed to the zoo (we ended up going back a second time) and especially the birds.

And this little guy. I had to go back to this aviary four times to get a shot of him. He ran more than flew and was very fast. He was a knockout though. Finally got on a perch right in front of me and showed off for a couple of minutes. Sweet.
