As I pulled up at home to unload my car, I heard a commotion in my man-fern garden right next to me. The parrots were feeding! These colourful birds always fly off when-ever they see me. I had the Pen-F in a bag on the passenger seat (who doesn’t right?) Luckily the 14-150 (300mm equivalent for full frame) was attached. I moved slowly getting it out, off with the radio, window down, please stay there …
I’m sure the Yellow Rosella (Platycercus elegans flaveolus) knew I was in the car, they played hide and seek, taking little peeks, still feeding, I waited.
I knew there was more than one, but I couldn’t see the others, so I kept waiting …. can you spot a second one hiding below?
They gradually became more comfortable with my presence but the evening light was fading fast!
In the shot below, you can see four of them! There ended up being six parrots when another couple few in. Some things are worth the wait.
I’m on a weeks holiday (yay me!), the weather is rubbish with wind, rain and snow every day, but I’ve been out taking photos and have quite a back log. I have had other tasks so haven’t had time for editing and blogging. Thanks for visiting 😀
