Marvelous shot, Shalu. It looks like he's trying to fly off with the building.

Love the light in this. Really illuminates that magnificent bird.
They are truly a bird of note.
Very nice photo.

Thank you very much, Mike and Richard!

this poor thing somehow got locked in my workshop.
I gather its open beak is a distress thing?
It disappeared after I'd left doors open and departed.

They are beautifully marked even if they are a pest!

(For Ray Petri!) The arrow head markings remind me of their heritage, or rather ours in Van Diemens Land. The convicts were adorned with garb stamped with arrows. They would have bought these with them!:rolleyes:

I can't get over what a pretty brightly colored bird this is. Great shot, Shalu.

Thanks Mike. Praise from you is praise indeed!:-)
Since I was ganged-up on I have eased up on the sharpening tool a bit.:-)

I can tell you one thing for sure, Ray. These shots are very nice and sharp, but not over sharpened. See what great results ganging up accomplished!! ;-)a:lol:

Funny thing you jumped in first Richard, I was working out a comment before I saw your comment. :-)
