Cash is a handsome looking fellow. The title threw me for a moment - I was expecting to see someone withdrawing money from an ATM machine. :boogie: As a side note, you may want to correct the white balance.

They can be such interesting creatures, very smart.

Part of your difficulty might be failing to recognize the color temperature of the light you're in. The human brain doesn't easily recognize differences in color temperature until there's a drastic shift. We automatically know that white is white and black is black. The camera doesn't, it's recording the actual scene. To me it looks like the room was lit by incandescent lights. Couple ways of handling that, first you can set your camera to Auto White Balance, shoot a test image of something white or preferably gray for color, then use the eye dropper tool in Lr to click on the test sample to adjust the WB, then sync all of your images to the same WB, or if your camera has adjustable settings for WB set it to incandescent. Here's a quick reference chart that might help you.

Cool bird and pics. I just use auto WB with mine, it usually works pretty good. Usually but not always, not real well when the light is tooooo dim. then I just pop it into PS and correct it.
