cool idea, a banana as bait for birds. *g*
superb clear shot, pam! :-)
that´s a real pretty fellow you are presenting us here -
perfectly sharp, with wonderful colors and a great "opened-beak"-pose.
i like his white eye-ring.
perfect job & take care, thorsten.

Very good capture with very good sharpness, the branch on the foreground is little bit distractive.

A beauty! Excelent sharpness on the bird, and soft grey background who does not compete for attention .
Well done and TFS

This is a very good catch of this beautiful bird. Details an sharpness are wonderful. I like the POV and BG too. How a so little bird could hold such a big chunk of banana like this? Amazing!

Woow ! I like very this lovey bird and its nice pose on the banana ! As always : colors, exposure, DOF and sharpness are excelent... Without the branch ahead it would have been perfect. Bravo Pam and TFS.

A beauty, Pam. Incredibly crisp and great compo. The lighting is soft and subtle.
I don't remember a bird sanctuary in Otago (though I do remember a wonderful plant garden), so the banana makes me wonder if you did this in the backyard. But this is really an Aussie bird, he's a bit lost, especially in the winter.

No hay mucho que decir de la calidad que logras en tus imágenes Pam.
Un bello retrato de esta especie, con adecuado DOF y POV, con suaves detalles en el plumaje del ave.
Es bueno volver a ver tus trabajos... realmente.
There is no much to say of the quality that you obtain in your images Pam.
A beautiful picture of this species, with suitable DOF and POV, smooth details in the plumage of the bird.

Remove that branch in front of the bird and this picture will be perfect!!! (But we don't have always the choice with nature). Colors and the grey bg are perfect! I like the avidity he is shpwing about the banana! Great position of the bird. Details are awesome (like all your pictures!).
Great job and TFS,
