Sasol Bird Fair 2013

Standard

Recently Ninja and I attended a Bird Fair at the Johannesburg Zoo. My main reason for attending was the three-hour workshop they offered for beginner and advanced avian photography, so unfortunately I didn’t spend too much time perusing the stalls at the Bird Fair itself. Still, it was a great day and I took a few pics during our stroll around the zoo.

I’m not going to post in too much depth about it now, though, as Ninja and I have plans to take a trip to the Pretoria Zoo soon, which is rather more impressive (from what I recall). So for now I’ll let the pictures do the talking 🙂
