King Parrot

Our local resident King Parrot was back today, and this time he didn't seem to mind me so much. Yet again the auto-focus failed me more often than not, but I managed to get a few decent shots.

    Back from your holiday already Alexandra ?

    They must go somewhere else during Winter as I've not seen any for the last 6 months or so, but recently this one (and maybe others) have been around quite close to the house.

    Only joking , nice shot David :-)
    auto focus can be very anoying at times.

    hahaha RH. Sure can. This camera has a single point auto-focus and it's far from accurate I'm afraid, esp. in complicated scenes.

    Look. He's eating a leaf and the bird has the expression like you caught it red-handed. :o)

    I think it's actually a seedpod Margot, but you're right, he looks very guilty ;)

    Thanks Alison :)
