Hi Ken. Lovely bird, beautiful vivid green.Is that a chikoo fruit? Nice composition and well caught so that his pose matches his name. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Ken,
I really like this shot of the Blue-Crowned Hanging Parrot, beautiful colours and superb detail, well framed, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Hi Ken

Good composition in this shot of the hanging parrot and his food. Good sharpness too.

Hi Ken!

I miss this posting, but I think already saw this at PhotoMalaysia.com from you.
Excellent image, that shows 'hanging' posture of this Hanging Parrot.
Very sharp with 'ciku' [sapodilla,(Manilkara sp.)] fruit.
You are very lucky to have this bird perched very low. Mine was high 100 feet away.
