    Houston, we have touch down.

    Caught this one coming into land near the back door for an early morning feed.
    Settings :
    1/400s, f /13.0, focal length 213.0 mm ISO 400 using a Sigma 50 -500mm lens, hand held.
    Thanks for viewing and for any feed back comments.

    Nice catch! I love it when you can catch the wing spread. What kind of bird is this? It's very pretty.

    It's a galah, a type of cockatoo. Seem like I have heard these are sometimes pests ? They are very expensive in the state, funny that.

    Nice shot.
