[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A pair of crimson rosellas feeding in a gum tree. Just had the small sony T100 at the time and on full 5 times zoom.

Crimson Rosellas will land on your outstretched hand eating seeds and fruit while clamped to your finger. They quite like seeds - sunflower seeds are however not good for most birds due to their high fat content. Tending to hold food in one claw means the other one needs to clamp on quite tightly to your hand. Your head and shoulders will also be common places on which they perch. The dominant birds will land on your head while the juveniles usually stay on the ground feeding on what has been dropped.

Hi Murray.
You did all you could considering the shooting distance. Very pictorial scene of the sweet birds and impressive tree branches. Nice colours and exposure, POV and framing. MY kind regards and TFS.

Hi Murray,

The crimson rosella slightly hidden by the leaves are impressive. The point of view is showing the deatils and colors of the bird. there is a good contrast between the colors. Have a nice day.
