I stand, in awe, of people who have such an affinity with nature, that birds and animals will do this sort of thing (unnatural as it is to them and their survival) Do you take the shot with a remote control?

Well done. Thanks for sharing Grin

How the hell did you get the bird to do that? Lovely picture. Being super critical I'd get rid of the moving nut personally.

Wow,what a response!

Many thanks to Caziwinkles and Helana for their user awards and to everyone else for your comments and votes it's very much appreciated.

I can't however take all of the credit for this shot, I was just one of a group of photographers/friends on the day that this shot was taken. Most of the credit must go to Philip Isom who's hand you can see in the shot, I was approximately 18 feet away. Philip has spent many hours feeding and gaining their trust, and as you can see they are unbelievably tame.

Kind regards each,

Glen.
