Finally got the chance to go chasing cockatoos yesterday, was actually looking for the red-tailed, but this yellow tailed posed nicely for me instead.

Taken with a Canon 400d with a Sigma 50-500 lens at full zoom, while sitting in the car down a back road.

    Well done Nick I seem to stretch to get a shot with my 250. You have done superbly to get this. With all the character of its environs captured well.

    I really like the comp here…and how perfectly the subject posed!

  • Thanks Ang, yes, the banksia and gum set it off nicely. Harder to “arrange” than flowers, but worth the challenge!

    I love cockatoos Nick, and especially the yellow tails and the reds. Have seen a few yellows in the wild but never a red…. I know they are more rare. This is a good capture!

  • Thanks Barb. appreciate your comments.
