    I love taking shots of Parrots, they are so cheeky. Shots taken on Canon 20d with Sigma 70-200 F2.8

    I love'em! I love parrots and your pictures are awesome. All are nicely composed and focused, with amazing detail. The vibrant colors of Parrots just lighten up the rain forest. I remeber when I went to the rain forest in Puerto Rico and saw the Mcaws fly over my head, it was mazing.
    Those are Mcaws and Lorys and conures?

    I'm going to have to make one of them my screensaver if you dont mind! :wink:
    Beautiful work!:)
    :thumbup:
    10/10!

    BTW, are these wild?

    Cool shots. The Sun Conure (2&4) is almost as cute as mine! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comments. Spot on with the bird types. Screensaver? Go for it, out of interest which one you wanting to use? Bigger copies on my flickr account.

    These were shot in a HUGE walk in avairy in Kurunda Queensland. Didn't have as long in here as I would have liked and wish there was something like this around here as rainforest enviroment + fairly tame birds = win!

    Thanks for commenting. :)

    For one to use as a screensaver, maybe all of them! Maybe I'll make a layer in Photo Shop and put them all on one sheet.

    Cheers

    On most of my shots, I duplicate the layer, play with the curves and then make the layer transparent and blend it down until it looks natural but adds a bit of punch.

    Heers my screensaver image I put together.
    I know, the Pelican is a little odd, but I couldnt find and images that were tall and skinny enough to fit in that place.
