Birds in my winter garden - part 9

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 29 July 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

A King Parrot - they become very tame and allow me to shoot close without needing a long lens. Most of my series was shot with a 70-300 lens but with the King Parrots I can shoot at 24mm or use a portrait focal length such as 85mm.

This shot concludes the series - I hope you enjoyed the visit to my garden!

Nikon 1 V1 1/500 second F/1.8 ISO 400 32 mm

Awesome photos series Stephen - I miss the beautiful Australian birds that used to visit our garden in Canberra. We used to feed the birds and loved seeing the different varieties that would visit - our neighbours weren't v impressed though when we inadvertently attracted in a gang of Cockatoos at 6am one morning!!
