Default [pics] juvenile Crimson Rosella

I was quite excited to find a flock of a dozen or so juvenile Crimson Rosella feeding amongst the grass at Mount Lofty Park at Wonga Park. These rosellas were very flighty & it took me a number of attempts to get anywhere near them. After half an hour or so they seemed to accepted my presence & I was able to get a couple of decent photographs of these beautifully coloured birds. As luck would have it, however, the sun decided it had had enough for one day & was hiding behind the clouds again.

The flock were very alert as they fed on seeds amongst the tall grass. As soon as one of the birds felt threatened they would sound off with an alert call & within seconds the entire flock would retreat to the safety of nearby trees.
