birds of a feather...

on saturday, i got to take pictures for an outdoor event. dylan has been volunteering with this particular committee for a couple years and volunteered me up to be the one to take the pictures. i figured it's good to put on my resume too ;) i was a little intimidated, but overall, once i got into it, it was a good day. i got to go in the aviary and then saw a couple owls too, which was awesome. i think i now love owls.

 i love this one! haha he kinda reminds me of the dramatic chipmunk on youtube
 such a gorgeous creature.
 octavius the owl
another fantastic lookin' creature
are these guys photogenic or what?! this one was itty bitty, but 8 years old.
 enthralled by him. kinda wanted to take him home.
oh, she all of a sudden got glasses? ha, nicknamed; the professor.

i think this is enough for now. it was a good experience and the lady in charge was really happy with all the pictures (400 which was then narrowed down to 170 which were edited). apparently i captured the joy. so that was a nice compliment :) maybe they'll have me back next year!
