Ask me to hold a bird and I’ll probably say no — having owned and worked with them in the past, I’ve had a few bites that make me more than a little nervous to do that again. But ask me to take some photos of them and I am there!
Bloedel Conservatory is the perfect tropical getaway right within the city limits. The minute you enter, you’re transported to a lush, tropical rainforest environment like no other in Vancouver. I think I could probably spend all day in this paradise.
The birds are by no means shy, and I had no problem grabbing multiple photos of even the smallest, flightiest finches they had. There was one elusive bird, and I unfortunately did not catch the name of the species. Whatever it was, it scuttled around the grounds, always managing to evade my camera at every chance. Thinking back, I wonder if the birds knew what they were doing, and were making a game of it at my expense.
All photos were shot with my Canon Rebel T3i, using my Canon EF 75-300 f/4-5.6
