Now that a really cool, humerus shot for sure, Rob. The hairdo kinda reminds me of some of our teenagers today. :lol:

Certainly not as demure as Mrs Gang Gang, but definitely more cheeky, here is one of the male Gang Gangs enjoying his white cedar berry in the same tree after the same shower.

Robert, regarding your question about intelligence of these birds. Apparently Gang Gang Cockatoos are all left handed, and research has shown that bird species which show a bias towards left handedness or right handedness generally have a greater intelligence than those species which are ambidextrous across their numbers.

WOW Graham...That shot is just plain incomparable...amazing​ly sharp. When I leaned forward to look at it closely, those ill kept feathers on the top of his head actually tickled my nose. ;-)a:lol:

Very cool shot. It looks like a tangle of legs (because of the reflection). It's a sharp and nicely exposed white image. It's hard to tell where his real legs stop and his reflection legs begin.
