 Post subject: pretty polly
PostPosted: Wed Feb 20, 2008 7:09 pm 
Took this shot on Sunday at a local animal park. This cheeky parrot flys free in a polly tunnel. You have to be watchful of bags, hair clips, glasses, anything that sparkles or dangles basically. I never wear earrings when I go into visit him.

Shutter speed 1.160
ISO 200
focal length 44.40mm


Cheers Ormina

Nice shot Ormina! Is it cropped at all? If not, you're pretty brave getting that close at 44mm!

Thanks Gordon, there was a very slight crop, the bird is so tame, there is never any worry. He never bites. :D

cheers Ormina
