    Thankyou for the comments everyone. They’re friendly enough, they mainly eat the cactus flowers, although this guy was over a metre long including the tail. I really cant recommend the place high enough!

    Awesome shot Matt! Is he really smiling??

  • Thanks Carol. I don’t think they can actually move their ‘lips’, but it does look like he’s smiling!

  • Thanks Rob, this was taken on my Panasonic FZ5 at full zoom, so around 430 mm. So yeah, he was a fair way away.
