      Thank you Jurgen! I wish I could get a super sharp photograph of this one. I used an HB pencil all the way to 6B, and I love the effects on the beak and face. I just can't get a really sharp, tight photo of it. I'm very pleased with this myself. I'm very fortunate Gambassi a DA member in Germany gave me permission to draw from her photo.

      What camera did you use to make the photos .. usually a Canon or Nikon do really great shots.

      I have a very small Pentax Digital 8.0 Pixals 7X Zoom. The problem is it's raining, and there is very little natural light today. When the sun comes out I will take it again. I tried it last night by incandescent light, but every thing was yellow, and the light reflecting off of the darker pencil turns a deep blue. I will probably get a new camera for taking Zoo pictures in the future (I had a really good Sony but it died), and I will need you to advise me on what to purchase or at least go look at.

      Oh well .. no wonder you're having this problems .. the best cameras for this are the Canon camera and I would recommend you get you one of this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004J3Y9U6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3
