I took these pictures on a very grey day, and if there was ever a time when I have enjoyed being able to see the images I am taking straight away it was on that day. I was able to mess with the exposure until I could get it more or less right. I also was surprised how close I got to the birds - using the car as a hide - and in fact I ended up with 'too much' lens. That is a situation I am not used to!
So, the Pink Cockatoo is about the same size as the more familiar Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, and also much less vocal.
They are truely wonderful birds.
There is a visiting Galah in two of these images.
This final image relies on a bit more manipulation than normal. These two birds would not look off to one side at the same time, so I took the chance to try a method of blending two images. I like it, as it does look as 'over-cooked' as some photoshopped images. Would you have known it was a blended image?
