[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my first upload of a Grey go-away-bird. The bird is looking for berries. Tomorrow I'll post this bird with a red berry. Don't know the identification of the Berry. Do know it is not Chuck or Halle:-).
They must be very tasteful (hence its pose) as the bird didn't took off...
Don't know whether it is a female or male?
In an English version of "The Kruger National Park" map there's another name mentioned: the Grey lourie.
Hope you'll enjoy it and don't go away..:-)

Hello Annick


Hi Annick,
Do you know why they are called this way, I'm curious... This is an unusual capture with original pose from this bird that looks a bit like a Cardinal but in grey :)! The only thing missing IMHO is a little catch light in its eye but unfortunately, we are not Doctor Doolittle to ask them to pose for us are we?... Well seen!

hello Annick,
Even I write for your all post, I fallow your shots pleasurely. They are excellent. This is also. You capture of this famous bird (for me at least) very nicely. Focus, composition, timing and POV great. BG and frame also very well. TFS, well done
