RAW. As is.

Yes, I went all the way to Singapore, visited Jurong Bird Park, and spent the best part of my time photographing an Australian native bird. What can I say? They are such characters, how could you not want to watch them?

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia (Maluku and Western New Guinea), Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. In Australia, it is common along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and northwest Tasmania. Its habitat is rainforest, coastal bush and woodland areas. Several taxa traditionally listed as subspecies of the Rainbow Lorikeet are increasingly treated as separate species.

Rainbow Lorikeets have been introduced to Perth – Western Australia, Auckland – New Zealand, Amsterdam – The Netherlands and Hong Kong. (care of Wikipedia)

I enjoy many forms of photography – with a particular interest in travel and nature photography. This diversity can be seen in the range of genres and styles in my portfolio

    The DOF is stunning bringing me closer to that eye. What colors too!!!

  • Thank you very much, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love the dof like this but I wasn’t sure if people would think it was a little too shallow. Thanks for your thoughts!
