Hello on this rainy day!
We have holiday today and of course - it's raining!
So I decided to show you a colourful shot on this grey day.
I don't know the names of exotic birds, sorry.
I think its a kind of waxbill - perhaps anyone can help - this would be very welcome.

Thanks for looking, have a nice day ...

Hello Sabine.
It's raining here also, so your colors are very welcome at this time. They are beautiful, just like the rest of this picture.
Thanks for your little light on this rainy and cloudy day.

Hi Sabine

What a bright fella we have here. I love his pose with his head turned to look at you. A delightful shot. :-)

Hi Wishnu,
Lovely great picture and wonderful colours..!
Beautiful colours and very good sharpness, very nice composition..!

Hello Sabine,
A very colourful bird indeed.Good sharpness and good POV. It really is a treat to the eye.
Thanks for sharing it.

bonjour sabine
je ne peux pas t'aider pour identifier cet oiseau mais ce qui est sûr c'est qu'il est tres beau et que tu ne devais pas etre bien loin de lui pour en faire un aussi gros plan.
bien joué.

Brilliant shot to add colour to our lives as well as TN. Very sharp focus and details. Perfect lighting, POV and DOF. I like the way it is giving you the 'look' and the pose. Great portrait. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

It is a pretty colourful bird and you have captured it well, Sabine.

Hi Sabine,
This one is really wonderful. The pose is so cute. Lovely fresh pastel colors are well registered. Sharpness and exposure are great. Very well done and tfs.

Hallo Sabine,
macht dir nix draus bei uns regnets heut morgen auch, also kommt dein Bild genau richtig.
Super ist der so richtig bunt, den kann man bestimmt nicht verpassen ;-)
Klasse hast den festgehalten, Schaerfe, Details und Farben kommen sehr gut zur Geltung.

Hello Sabine,
Colourful indeed... and curious!
Well framed subject, superb details are captured...
DOF is just right, and the composition is attractive!

Hi Sabine,
What a wonderful colorful little bird. It looks like its a parakeet, but I am not sure what kind. The way you got eye contact with the bird is really sweet. As if it is posing for you to show its best side. Your fill flash illuminated the colors perfectly and gave you a shadowless photo.
Vielen dank,

Hi Subine.
Funny bird (and its glance) and very nice colourful picture. I like this ocean of colours and lights as well as the exact DOF and impressive sharpness and details of the bird. My best regards and TFS.

Wow, great job recording those colors -- they're so bright and vivid, especially compared to the boring beige bg. He's nicely placed in the tight frame, too. Good job with the DoF here. So all of these factors add up to a nice focus on this beauty. Well done.

Hello Sabine,
Where did you take this picture? Was it in your backyard? This guy seems not to be in the right country :) This is a colorful fellow that you captured with great details and wonderful eye contact! I can’t help with ID as we don’t have those cute little one here. Thanks,

Hola Wishnu. Esta hermosa foto es de un lorito australiano de nombre: Neophema pulchella...solo que es una mutación de color lograda en cautiverio que se llama Verde claro pastel de pecho rojo...Saludos.

Hello Sabine,
Where did you take this picture? This bird seems not to be in the right country, I agree with Claudine! Good details, capture of tones of color & POV. TFS
