King Parrot

King Parrot

Taken from window at home. Quick snap as I am on crutches and this is the best I could do. This has been heavily cropped (about 20% of original shot with a 2 times equivalent magnification lense - the parrot was about 15 metres away)

The King Parrots (pair) were scouting out a new home. They were eyeing off the nest of our neighbours the Rainbow Lorrikeets. The much smaller Lorrikeets returned and scared them off. Beautiful colours which perhaps are a little lost in this shot which is a little overexposed and soft.
