I was lying on the ground quite close to the galah. She was always careful to keep an eye on me :)

Photo was taken at Neil Hawkin’s Park in Joondalup, Western Australia.

    Gorgeous.

    Add it to the Australian Wildlife group too!

    Beautiful angle and perspective. I am often found laying on the ground too, at one with my subjects. It gives a better perspective

  • Yes, the perspective is better and the background is a lot nicer then. Only problem is I ended up with bird poo on my pants!

    Stunning shot – excellent detail!

  • Thank you! The ones at this park can be hand-fed so I was able to get really close to capture the details.
