Getting Up Close

I am often amazed at how close some wild birds will allow me to get. Slow steady movement is required; any sudden moves and the subject is gone.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)

This Sulphur-crested Cockatoo had landed on a branch near my back deck. Although nervous, it allowed me to get within a couple of metres, and take this portrait.

Australian King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis)

This portrait of a young Australian King Parrot was a little easier to take. On a hot summer’s day, it was intent on getting a cool drink.
