Feeding the Birds at Busch Gardens

Cole has been asking to feed the birds at Busch Gardens and his opportunity finally came. We were there on a Monday evening and the crowds had gone home.

Kevin purchased small cup of food from the Busch Gardens staff and taught Cole how to hold the liquid feed tightly in his hand. (The staff warned that the birds could get pretty greedy and might knock the food out of your hands.)

It didn't take long for a feathered friend to perch on Cole's hand.

And before he knew it another came along. (I wonder what he was whispering in Cole's ear)

The second bird worked it's way down the lanyard and got a few tastes before the food was all gone.

Cole did a great job - standing very still while the birds ate.

He was focused on staying still - he didn't want to scare the birds away. (Of course they probably weren't going anywhere as long as he had food.) There were other shots of him smiling more but, they had deep shadows that didn't look good. (The mottled lighting was hard to work with and Cole hates it when I use a flash.)

He doesn't look like he's having much fun, but maybe he's just trying to be real still!

He looks so calm and collected! Good job Cole!
