Hi! I love your parrot pictures. They're very bright and sharp and have amazing colours. Brilliant notes aswell.

Hi Stephanie,
I really like this colorful lory!
You made an excellent portrait with the POV and close approach.
It's very good the beak gradations, and the vivid and intense red of the body's plumage.
Great eye contact and its details.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Steph,
I envy you for your easy access to world's best birds which must be available in one of those supremely maintained bird parks in your city. As for me, I have to be content with flies, cockroaches and an occasional bee here in Riyadh :-(.
Lorikeets are perhaps the world's best looking birds, but you have got to be a good photographer to capture their real beauty. This picture of your confirms that you are a good nature photographer.
My aging eyes are grateful to you for providing them with the pleasure of admiring this super sharp and colourful image.

Hi Steph,
Very nice colors and sharpness is too good.
