Pale Headed Rosella by joannakate

Pale Headed Rosella

Various shades of blue with a flash of red. It had started to rain again, so it was a quick shot, but not really in focus, but thought I'd post it anyway because its a lovely parrot. Have very little experience with bird photography, find it more than frustrating.
Join the club. I shot a heap today and deleted the lot. Keep going, though. It's usually down to shutter speed (max it out), focus settings, then depth of field (aperture), which you just have to experiment with. Good dof here, though :)

It is a very pretty bird. I'd love a bigger lens for bird shots. I delete more than I keep too :)

Beautiful capture! Looks fabulous on black! Like you, I have very little experience with bird photography . . . I bought some feeders and seed last week and like Dave suggested, I'm going to experiment until I can consistently get some good shots. :-)

Very beautiful capture!

I really like it too! I use faster shutter speeds and always focus on the eyes. They tend to move so its tricky sometimes!
