    Lovely colurs and nice detail in the feathers. The apple is a very strong element though - perhaps try him / her with a grape next time!

    I like it.
    God made two great lights; the sun to rule by day and the moon to rule by night. He also made the stars.
    And He set them all in the heavens to give light upon the earth; And God saw that it was good.

    Ive seen the light and it is indeed very good

    Wow. I've begun to think that birds are even better subjects than flowers when it comes to the vibrancy of colours. Only thing is that I'm a lot better sneaking up on flowers than I am on those damn birds.

    We used to keep Kakariki in our aviary. They're awesome birds with a pleasant chatter, rather than the obnoxious screeching of the Aussie parrots. That hint of blue you can see is quite a large patch on the underside of the wing and is really vivid. They'd make a great 'Bird in flight' shot.They forage on the ground a lot and are very curious, so you can see why they've been decimated by ferrets and the like.
    To keep them you have to get a permit from DOC. They come and inspect the aviary and you have to keep records and things. Bit of a hassle. The sad thing is that you end up having to destroy offspring because you can't release them.
    Nice shot of one Rob.

    Wow wicked colours and razor sharp shot Rob.

    I like the second but it's hard to compete with the colours and that of #1.

    Cheers. Colours and detail are fairly amazing on this one, even at 100% view of 18mp.

    Was shot with flash (you can probably tell ) but even so.

    Sometimes that 70-200 turns in the goods. Shame its not all the time, but then it has a poor operator.
