Hi Pam. A very well cropped and presented parrot which i happen to like very much. Wonderful colours and useful frame. TFS. Murray.
This is a superb capture of a yellow crowned Parakeet, first class in all respects and you should have credit for that.
But there is one thing that I feel frustrated about:
For the person mainly interested in photography with a secondary interest in nature, it doesn't seem to matter where the shot was taken.
But for people like me who are primarily interested in nature and use photography to express it, it is very important to know where the shot was taken and if possible under what conditions.
This fine shot is of a species native to NZ, but I don't know whether it was taken in an aviary or out in the wild near Christchurch.
I would be most grateful to know.
Thanks for sharing,

Very good portrait of green Kakariki. I like composition and frame, bird's pose, POV. Pity that there wasn't more sunlight. Overall very good as always my friend!

A nice clear capture of this Kakariki Pam.
I've only seen these in the wild once,on Mt Pirongia.
Shame birds like this aren't as widespread as they once were.
A beautiful shot anyway.

Beautiful bird/image with excellent quality. Very nice color & exposure, and the close-crop comp works for me. Great detail, DOF, and blurred BG..
No WS, but I still would've removed the ankle bracelet ;)
Very well done.
