We have a pair of Grey Go Away Birds (also known as Grey Lourie) that visit our garden every day to eat grapes and bread. They have become quite tame, allowing us to stand less than a metre away while they eat. This allows me to get some nice close-up shots. In this one I've cropped quite closely to show the detail in his crest as Mr. Squawkybeak eats a piece of red grape.
