Close-up: Rocky

I saved Rocky for last (Calypso really was uninterested in this [as Thomas was taking these pictures], so we left him alone.)

Rocky kept trying to attack Thomas when he was taking pictures of him, resulting in quite a few pictures where Thomas was moving to avoid the bite. They have a certain artistic quality about them:Look at that body language -- eye pinned, beak opened, head feathers raised, wings raised. I don't think he could give off any more warning signs if he tried!
This was another attempted camera attack:
A mostly still picture:
And one final attack picture:
We think his reaction actually had less to do with the camera and more to do with the fact that Thomas was wearing clothes other than his Rocky-approved uniform of scrub pants, dirty white T-shirt, and housecoat.
