[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
This species is remarkable for the extreme sexual dimorphism : you see here the female, the male is bright green with orange beak. It's hard to realize it's the same species.
It's a medium-sized parrot( about 35 cm) living in Solomon islands, New Guinea and Northern Australia. In fact the area where one can find it is very small in Australia (just around Cairns or about).
He prefers rainforests.
It is not threatened and commonly found as a pet.

I don't want to post a picture of a male because its quality is bad, but I put it on WS if is interesting for you. It's just to illustrate sexual dimorphism.

Bonjour Philippe,
A very nice capture of the female Eclectus Parrot. The clarity, pose, natural colours and composition are excellent.
When we visited Queensland over six years ago we also took a trip to Kuranda where we saw the butterfly house, but we missed the aviary.
Nice to view this and the WS!
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Phillipe,

What a colorful bird...The lighting was not at its best but still you managed it beautifully..

TFS..have a nice weekend,

Ciao Pholippe, great capture of lovely Parrot, fantastic colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Philippe,
an image that is well describing theat colourful species, the background, however, might be somewhat less interfering.
The image that you posted in the workshop does look good, no reason to hide it because of quality. It shows a lively pose frontally aproached, it is well composed and has a favourably clean and well contrasting background. An image well worth to be presented on its own.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Philippe,
Nice capture of this very colourful bird with great sharpness.
well composed picture with good eye contact.
best wishes,

Bonjour Philippe,
La profondeur de champ n'est pas excellente mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
