Kea Pair - Nestor notabilis
great compo and great colors showing how good their camouflage really is. There is quite a deep DOF (as always with digital bridge or compact cameras) and imho the bg could be a bit more blurred. On the other hand it is showing even better how they disappear in their natural environment

What a cool looking guys you have here :) Really nice details on birds and colours. They are almost invisible on this BG which show how they look in their natural environment.

bellissima cattura di questi uccelli che non conoscevo, splendida composizione con le belle posture laterale e frontale che evidenziano molto bene il piumaggio colto con un'eccellente definizione, molto belli i colori e l'ambientazione naturale con le rocce. Interessanti note.

A perfectly formed pair in their natural surroundings Steve, finely demonstrating their camouflage abilities. An expertly capture indeed! TFS this beautiful image my friend.

They really do have bags of character don't they? What i like is that they match in colour their surroundings here, which is to be expected i suppose. Very crisp details and well exposed too, nice work mate.

Anther lovely and perfect capture of this pair of Keas in a fine composition. Details, sharpness and BG are also excellent my friend.
TFS and cheers,
Ps. In this season, every Monday and Tueasday I have got so many obligations in both diurnal and nocturnal education. therefore, in these days I have limited time for the feedback. Hence I can make my comments/critiques at the night time after resting. sorry for the delaying...

These are beautiful birds. We don't see these types of birds around here unless there pets. Seeing them in there natural habitat is great. I really would like to see a bit more separation with a creamier background since the entire scene is the same color as the Keas' Sharpness and details are great and lighting and exposure is very nice as well. TFS

These are probably the most beautiful birds. There camo color makes them probably also the most difficult ones to photographe. I like how their color blends with the background but how the are seperated by it due to the perfect DOF.
