Breast Cancer Awareness Month! - Gallah - NZ by 


National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)) an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. My contribution in Pink for Breast cancer awareness month.
The Galah (pronounced /ɡəˈlɑː/), Eolophus roseicapilla, also known as the Rose-breasted Cockatoo, Galah Cockatoo, Roseate Cockatoo or Pink and Grey, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.
It is endemic in Australia (and introduced to Tasmania, where its distinctive pink and grey plumage and its bold and loud behaviour make it a familiar sight in the bush and increasingly in urban areas. It appears to have benefited from the change in the landscape since European colonisation and may be replacing the Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo in parts of its range.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    You need Keith in his pink suit with bird!!! Beautiful Capture! I so love!

  • Thank you Rose, I am not sure if Dela would like the competition, he is supposed to be my Pink boy. You make me laugh, and I can just picture Keith’s bright pink suit with Dela on his shoulder. It could make a great capture.
