This guy showed up in my backyard with a few of his mates last week. I finally got a reasonable shot in

This shot was so close to being fantastic. Just missed the tips of his wings. In any case its and interesting angle.

I like the wing spread in this one.

Just realised I stopped mid sentance in the original post. I had meant to say, I finally got a good shot that looks natural, rather than on a fence or on a roof.

I like the second shot...looks like it`s dancing!
The first is really pretty also.

I very nearly ran over one of these on the Jinker today Antz. Leanne and I were almost at the carpark to start our ride and several of them were on the road which is unusual. I slowed slightly expecting the usual flurry of wings and it didn't come until I'd slammed on the anchors and slowed right up. Dumb ass parrots! I don't need a new hood ornament!

I prefer first shot here - very well carved.

Thanks all. :thankyou:

I prefer first shot here - very well carved.

Certainly shot 1 is the pick of them for me too.
