    A beautiful shot Dami. It’s not an Aussie bird is it?

  • No it’s not, it’s from Indonesia. Though initially I mistook it for the King Parrot, very similar looking. And thank you!

    I think it’s even prettier than the king parrot if that’s possible.

  • You may be right!

    WOW! Love the color! Beautiful catch looking straight on! HUGE Congratulations on your feature! Excellent work!!! :-)

  • Thanks so much. I thought the “straight on” was a little whimsical and different from the usual bird shots. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
