More on captive animals (Nathanael Gass)

There are more place than the zoo to visit to photograph captive animals. The picture of the blue bird was taken at a local museum's butterfly house. I could get quite close to the bird with a 180mm macro lens. This photo is just slightly cropped to get rid of some distracting sticks. Imagine what I could have done with a longer lens!
The other photo of the swans was taken at a rather unique place, a waterfowl preserve called Sylvan Heights in Scotland Neck, NC. My photography club got special permission to enter early one morning. The light was great, and I got to photograph all sorts of cool birds up close. This is one of my favorite shots.
If you don't know of many places like these you can visit, join a local photography club. You can meet other photographers, learn about good places to photograph, and go on outings with the club. Photography clubs sometimes get special permission to enter places before they are opened to the public. I am a member of Carolina Nature Photographer's Association (CNPA).
Metadata (Bird): Nikon D-80 with 180mm macro lens, tripod.
Metadata (Swans): Nikon D-80 with 80-210mm lens, tripod.
