Excellent portrait,with great details.ah they are famous !!

Hi Cem
I think you can start posting, - no need to wait on others, I like the pictures you have posted so far. And I love gulls, they are always good for some action, whether it is their sqaking voices or thieving mannerisms, never a dull moment. You should try our local Hadeda Ibis for sound - they can really call you right out of your bed!
A nice mood and good details in this lori. The one on the right is a bit hen-pegged, it seems. TFS

Lovely picture !! what is wrong with the one one the right ?? The colours and composition is spot-on. Love the OOF background

Very nice picture, though I just have to point out that these are definitely no lories, but a pair of Yellow-headed amazons, Amazona ochrocephala oratrix/belizensis. (The two subspecies are difficult to tell apart)
