Male red-winged parrot, Aprosmictus erythropterus, feeding on sandpaper figs, Ficus scobina, in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory of Australia.

Magnificent parrot.
Seems a slender bird,
Lovely setting.

Superb image Gene. Wonderful sharpness and composition.

No, really, it is a rainy day.


Two outstanding shots in a row, Gene. Very, very nicely done.

That's a steller shot Steve. It's sharp and well composed.

What a wonderful shot, Tom. You did that one nicely. That guy better be careful on that hunk of cactus.

Nice shots, Kevin. I really like the first shot of the bird reaching into the flower.
