Semblance of Freedom

Nikon D5100, Nikkor 55-200mm @ 200mm, 1/500 seconds @ f/5.6, ISO 100


Shot was taken at Attica Park Zoo, which justifies the title.

Although it's beautiful to be able to see all these wild animals close and personal kind of, it is sad at the same time considering, there were taken out of their Natural environment.

I wonder what this hawk is looking for.

For food...I don't think so, maybe for the waiter to order, or for a hole in the wires, big enough that can lead to freedom.


I have cloned the labelled ring on it's leg and dropped the background to B/W, to emphasize in the captivity "monochromatic" factor.


Have a wonderful weekend.

Take care.
