Just spent a wet and rather wild week in Tasmania – one of the endemic species found down there is this parrot – the Green Rosella. Saw these by the road side, hit the brakes and rushed out – two shots later they were gone. The first picture was not worth the memory it occupied – but I was rather pleased with this one. Splendid birds with a bell like voice. I heard them far more often than I saw them, which always seems strange for such a colourful beast.
