[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The Galah is a common cockatoo in Australia. It can be seen in open country, almost everywhere. The species is rather familiar and is not afraid living in urban districts. He often lives in large flocks (I have seen more than 100 galahs simultaneously in the blue mountains). It's a middle-sized bird among psittaciformes (about 35 cm and 350 g). Both sexes are almost similar but irises (black for the male and reddish for the female). Its color is unique and can't be confused with an other species.

Hi Philippe,
Perfect shot of a beautiful parrot.
Nice colours and details.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Philippe.
Lovely picture with very perfect colour of this Galah.
best wishes,

Bonjour Philippe,
L'éclairage me paraît un peu excessif sur le sujet mais il est relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Philippe,

You're capturing well this bird by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the cute bird with pink head, grey back and pretty eye. And it's harmonized well with the surrounding brown ground/sprig in the point of clolor balance.

Kind regards,
