Budgerigar in the wild

By drbird  
Thank you all for your awards comments and votes on my last image....very much appreciatd.

This image looks like an easy image but it wasn’t for me….The few budgerigars in the area loved a relatively large water hole so we observed the area for days to find the favourite spot – set up the hide over night and go in while it is still dark the next morning. Well – the local farmer moved his young bulls over to this part the day before so no budgerigars but plenty of curious bulls.
The next water hole had even fewer but was free of cattle the only drawback the birds here arrive relatively late so that the light was pretty harsh but at least we got some images of a pretty shy species which will be again on my target list for next year.
