One thing I've learned from the otters and bird shots is that fur is more forgiving at the editing stage than feathers !!! LOL.

I agree!

Wonderful shots - a pretty bird. And yes, feathers are less forgiving.

I really haven't tried to take pictures of fur much since I got the dSLR, should change that.

Thanks Darren Mtngal & Roy.

Once again the Tamron 70 -300.

Will be using this mostly, unless I get round to landscapes when the kit lens 18-55 should be worthwhile and for a certain estuary where I'll use the Sigma 400.

All very nice shots, I don't think I will pick a favorite as I like them all. I had to check out Kea's in wikipedia as I had never heard of one. A very impressive bird with much more of a raptor appearance than a typical parrot.

Thanks Tim.

I think all parrots are hard cases but the Keas are particularly precocious !!!

Thanks John

Good point about trying where possible for uncluttered background.

I'll try to remember that.
