Default RTW - The End

Well this is it, the final post of the RTW series. I saw 232 different species of which 191 were new lifers and I photographed a total of 188 out of the 191. This has raised my total life list to 898 of which I have photographed 574 of them. Highlights of the trip were seeing Albatross, Kia (The only alpine parrot), Cassowary and California Condor. Disappointments were not getting shots of Kia and not seeing Burrowing Owls or Roadrunners. We saw a lot of different places, some I liked and some I didnít, and did lots of different things that I normally wouldnít do. So here are 15 shots, not the best, that I particularly enjoyed taking. Thanks to all that took the time to look at the posts and a special thanks to those that took the time to comment. Oh, and thanks to all who gave me some Karma, it really is greatly appreciated.
1. Olive-backed Sunbird female
2. Olive-backed Sunbird male
3. Australian Pelican
4. Welcome Swallow
5. Nankeen Kestrel
6. Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher

Kevin, I believe I can say that we all thank you, for sharing you incredible world trip photos with us. Wow just such a very awesome series of the many different species you managed to photograph and with such wonderful photos, Ks are in this case are inadequate and the five stars I now attach to this post also fall too short. Kevin thanks to you so much.
