[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
So many species of parrot, so I am not so sure about this pair of birds. I believe that they are from sub-family of loriinae, but not sure on genus and its species.

Cited from Wikipedia: "Lorikeets and lories are small, brightly coloured, highly aboreal parrots. They are usually classified as Loriinae, the most clearly distinct of the several rather uncertain subfamilies within the Psittacidae. Some authorities regard the differences between the Loriinae and the other parrots as sufficient to justify promoting the group to full family status, in which case, following the biological naming conventions, they become the Loriidae, and are placed alongside the remaining true parrots (Psittacidae) and the cockatoos (Cacatuidae) within the biological order Psittaciformes."

Hi Benyamin,
These are very nice and colorful birds indeed. I like the way they pose on this branch :-) This is a good composition but I guess that I would have decreased a bit this harsh lightning and ajusted contrast... Well done anyway with good details on the birds. Thanks,

Salam Ben
No time critique later, but colours are great.

A lovely pair, Benyamin.
The colours are fantastic.
Great image with a fine POV, DOF and clarity.
TFS and take care.

Wonderful colours and subject...would have liked to see a little more clarity with the birds, it may have made them stand out just a little more. very good.

Bonjour Ben
Excellente prise de vue de ces beaux perroquets
Les couleurs sont éclatantes et la netteté est bonne. Félicitations pour la qualité.

Merci et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain

great shot, ben! :-)
the colors on the two feathery friends are awesome -
i guess the show every color of the rainbow.
excellent composition, wonderfully isolated against the bg,
just a little bit soft on the focus and the pattern of the
cage-wall is slightly visible in the bg.
nice job & take care, thorsten.

Hi Ben!
Beautifully colored birdies. A family, probably - they say parrots are very faithful to their "spouse".

Definatly a perfect title. Great picture!! Looks like something my son colored. TFS

family. I own a few that talk English & Portuguese.
The clariy is of EXCELLENT quality. Your notes are very good too & your statements are correct.

Hello Benyamin,

What nice parrots you are offering us here. I like the way they are standing... But I think you got diffulties with the exposition and the focus. Also we can see the cage in the bg... TFS and keep trying :-)
