Cropped and highlights lightened in PSP.


Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism welcome. :-)

Great photograph - wish the 28s whichare the only ones that enter my garden would let me get near enough but they are far too timid. They are not too timid when they strip my almond tree though...but I can never catch them

I love this shot! I need to keep up with the forum a little better, I realize you posted it a few days ago. For all of us cockatoo lovers in the states, seeing them in the wild is thrilling. In their natural state, where they should be. And yes, I have a beautiful Umbrella, named Capella.

Great shot Puddock! The contrast of the white and green is super, and the white didn't get blown out! Jim
