Super color mix of yellow, pink and grey, not to mention the spectacular eye-patch. Actually, I personally don't mind the DOF in number 1 but on the same hand respect bobby's opinion immensely. To me, personally, the OOF foreground flowers, OOF background flowers,and OOF bird on the right seem to border and surround the nicely focused main subject bird in what to me is a somewhat logical composition overall.

Very nice, Julie.

Are those birds permanent residents, or are they on their spring migration?

Very unusual looking parrots. We ,in India, usually see green parrots with red beak & black ring round the neck.

Yup, OOF is out of focus.

The #2 is better, a little head turn towards the camera or change is shooting position would have helped it more.

These are permanent residents, pink and grey galahs who are native to Australia. We have a lot of parrots, greens, reds and yellows and mixes of the colors. There is also a blac /red cockatoo native to here that fetches huge amounts of money in illegal trade overseas. I get so angry when I see birds in cardboard cylinders picked up in customs, people trying to sneak them out of the countryMany of them dont make it
