    love that 3rd shot! Great gliding shot as he comes in to land (I assume), - Think the tail you got in that is tapering to give the parrot an almost fantasy aspect (that of having a lizards tail as opposed to feet) - but then I have been reading fantasy books today.....

    Awesome set... It's like he was flying back and forth and then stopped to check out the camera/cameraman. ;)

    Great images! :thumbup:

    Gorgeous colour and details. Good shooting, Daan! My faves are #2 (head and tail nicely in focus, the wings blurred as they flap, and the dark background providing good contrast), and #4 (cheeky stare directly into the camera)

    Love the 3rd shot, the colours are amazing!
    The 4th one is very cute. I've never really noticed the small black feahers around the eyes.
    Good job :)

    thanks, Sigma 70-300 4-5.6 APO DG
    Thank you, i never really noticed those feathers neither. Always thought it was just pigment on their skin.....ah the things you learn while doing photography
    Thanks Corinna......and dont sigh, you are suposed to be cheerfull ;)
    But you can, it just takes a bit of practice and alot of memory cards :mrgreen: Alot of the pics i took werent that good, but sometimes you just get lucky and get a rather sharp pic :)
    Thanks :)
