Below is a photo of an Australian King Parrot, so you know what I’m talking about. I’ve borrowed this from http://www.birdphotos.com.au, the site of photographers Greg Holland and Leon Keasey. However I have to tell you, that digital images just don’t do justice to the red on this bird. I mean seriously, this creature was just stunning, and the red was amazingly rich in reality. Made such a nice change from those noisy magpies (and whatever birds are canoodling on my rear vision mirrors every single night and leaving a fine mess for me to clean off the car every morning).
Enjoy the colours of the season – whether it’s the Southern Hemisphere blooms or the changing leaves of the Northern Hemisphere. Inspiring season wherever you are in the world 🙂
