You got it!

You got the underside! Great photo.. Very jealous..! My camera refused to focus on the moment supreme, giving me a picture of a bush the bird had landed behind. I bought a SLR afterwards but haven't gotten the opportunity anymore. They are very cool birds.. Keeeeaaaaa!

Re: You got it!

Thanks very much, this was a lucky shot. I was taking photos of another Kea, which is just out of shot, when this one came swooping down and landed right in front of me. It then did this little display as if it was jealous of the attention lavished upon its companion.

Pretty amazing, Dan

This Kea looks like it's going to tear into something she just caught.
Great catch on this pic, and a beautiful album,

The colours:

The colours are wonderful.
By the way at first as I was reading I thought Canterbury as in my area Kent. LOL.

Re: The colours:

Cheers David, they are amazing birds. Perhaps a bit too exotic for Kent though ;)
