I hope this might be some kind of Lorikeet.
First of all I hope you are all well as it's been a while...
It's a photo from the archive. Captured back in 2006 with the Canon 350D sensor and edited in 2010 software and hardware.
Provided some Post-crop vignetting to focus on the bird. Did some burning in the bird's white area.
Thanks for viewing(again);-)

Hello Annick,
What interesting and beautiful bird portrait,great colors and perfect sharp details.TFS.

Dear Annick,
I am soo glad, you decided to post again to TrekNature!!
I love your photos from southern Africa!!

This portrait is beautiful - and with your usual perfect photographic technique - a true pleasure to view.

Incidentally, where did you photograph the bird? I particularly like the natural colours.

Have a nice week-end
Greetings from South africa

PS There is a saying, that all male (parrots) have a blue tinged beak!?!

Hi Annick and nice to see you here again!

Great close-up of this beautiful bird and w well dug out of the archive.
The details here are very nice and i particularly like the gorgeous details from the plumage (all those fine visible lines of the feathers are so cool!).
I think your post-processing also works well and helps for a better overall look of the photo.
Well done, my friend!

Bravo, TFS and have a great weekend!

Hello Annick
Long time no see!...your superb photos !
As usual a great portrait of this parrot ? but not easy to identify with the head only !
Kind regards

Really cool bird, now this is one you don't see very day..Nice beard ;)
Good job on the PP Annick.

Hallo Annick,
Ik wist niet dat je al weer een aantal foto's hier geplaatst hebt. Ik ben af en toe een weekje weg geweest en precies in die periodes heb je deze beauties gepost. Steeds heb ik nog aan je gedacht... waarom zou hij geen foto's meer zetten...? te druk met wielrennen...? De Tour... of niets nieuws misschien...? En zie daar!
Dit is een geweldig mooie opname, helemaal jouw top kwaliteit. Heb helaas geen mogelijkheid meer om je laatste foto's naar waarde te beoordelen, maar dat maak ik de komende dagen goed.
Ik ben erg blij dat de laatste dagen steeds meer 'oudgedienden' van TN terugkeren, maar vooral met jouw terugkeer. Een beetje humor kunnen we wel weer gebruiken.

Hi Annick,
Great capture of that lorikeet.
Excellent details and great sharpness.
