Crimson rosella

By KangaGal
Taken at a wonderful Qld location called O'Reilly's. The birds are quite free but as feeding stations are available, the birds love the handouts and come down. I know this shot has lots of overexposed bits but I still like it. When our family lived in Victoria, we had these in our backyard. They are very friendly birds. They are not screechy like the lorikeets and have quite a nice call.
Thanks for yesterday's comments.

Such a beautiful and colourful bird with a bright eye . Can you get a polariser to fit your lens ? You live with such bright sunshine .

I stayed for a month in Melbourne in 2001 with my Aunt. I often saw these birds but didn't ever get close enough and it was 6 months after that I went digital Smile

Thankyou everybody for these lovely comments.
Chris - or anyone - do you have to be a member to be able to add to a favourites list? If not, how do I do this? It would be so handy.
The site is so good and so many great shots to look at, as non-members you don't know who's voted for you and vice versa, so I like to leave a personal comment but it is becoming so very time consuming. Any ideas please?
Thanks, Jenny

Another fantastic shot.
So colourful and as someone said you have so much sun it must be hard to get the right exposure...but it looks fine to me.

i have a Golden Mantled Rosella and the family name used to be O'Reilly but it's now just Reilly.

so beautiful... it goes with your PF which is just that beautiful Smile

I read where you wanted to add favorites.. I know when I first started you could do so .. hope it is the same.. When you are someones image and you want to save them as a favorite. look to the right and there should be the word Favorite. Click on it and it should add the persons PF to your fav. list. then each time a new image is downloaded you will be able to click favorites on your sight and pull them up.... hope this is the info you were looking for.. Smile
