Just wrote in another thread that, for economic reasons, me and my wife are through with travelling for some time. But after seeing your pictures I havebought a Lotto ticket. :-)

You know, it's not easy for an aviaryfreak as me to see your fine cockatoo pictures (the other two are also very nice, but I have this cockatoo addiction).

I like the first two a lot and actually the third one as well, but he seems to get lost in the background. Still from such a distance and with all the cropping, it came out pretty nice! The K20 is quite a camera in the right hands.

The cockatoo portrait is quite sharp, especially for 300mm. You have such interesting birds down under.
