[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Our last day in the Mackay area was marred by rain. So we spent the whole driving around country roads hoping to find a break in the rain. The rain persisted but we found plenty to look at from the car and practically no other traffic all day.
One bird that we found was a pair of Pale-headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus), a beaufifully plumage parrot that is endemic to north-eastern Australia. They inhabit open woodlands with a grassy understory and this pair was happily feeding on the roadside. We tried creeping up to them in the car and although we got close enough for a full frame shot, they refused to turn around or even look sideways. Then they flew further down the road. This time I got some distant shots as they wouldn’t allow us to get any near than about 40m, so this is a big crop from the original. The parrot is a bit wet, but I still think it was worth a post.

Nice POV and composition. A little unusual and well done.

This is incredible Chris!
Even for a 20m shot this has good sharpness and clarity but 40m with a 300mm lens! Amazing!
This is nevertheless a good capture of the Pale-headed Rosella, A species that I photographed with my Canon 2S IS with a poorer result than this on the Atherton Tablelands.
TFS this nice reminder,

Hi Chris,
What a cool looking bird mf.
Really like the yellow upper and lower blue colors, accented with that touch of red at the rump :)
Nice POV, comp, & details.
Well done!
