Mr & Mrs Red Billed Leiothrix (Leiothrix lutea)

By FeatherFriend
To finish this little mini series on this pretty little bird, here's a shot of the Male and Female sitting quite happy side by side. (the male is the one on the right).
Sorry I haven't been clicking around much lately but I have been away for a few days and at the end of the week I am going to Aberlour, Scotland for two weeks. If any of you are familiar with this part of Scotland, and have any suggestions on places to visit, it would be greatly appreciated. Will now try to catch up as quickly as possible.
Many thanks to you all for your votes and comments on my previous upload, your continued support is so encouraging.

Quote:Super shot Geoff, like the pose and lighting, not always easy with caged birds

Richard, thanks for your comment, Some 'cage', you should see the layout of this place, it's vast but they are flying around free to a point, and I still have to wait around waiting for the right moment. I have found this to be as difficult as some of the 'out in the wild' shots I have uploaded, at least with the latter you don't have dozens of people milling around creating a very noisy atmosphere and disturbing them further.
