    From the Garden 2 King Parrots

    These are a couple of King Parrots who arrived in our garden a week or so ago. A very rushed lens change and hand held in failing light. They are quite shy and moved very quickly so most shots are unacceptabley blurred.
    The fourth is a bit of a rush job with a vignette of blurring to try to direct attention but I will re-visit it.
    1 The male on a feeder.

    3 He faced the lens and continued eating

    4 His mate sitting in a banksia. She came and joined him but they moved too quickly for the light level and my hand holding so this is the only useable one of her.

    Yes I think so. I shot through our (open) kitchen window. You have other things that we have to travel to though.
