    Collared Lory


    Collared Lory by Antony, on Flickr

    Taken with my ancient Sony NEX-7 and not that well-received Sony E 18-200 F3.5-6.3 lens, and Sony HVL-F58AM flash.

    Nice shot of this bird Antony and good to see you have not lost how to take a good photo.
    I seen this and got out my bird book and looked for it and couldn't find it.
    So to Goggle I went and found out this is a Fijian bird and no wonder its not in my book of birds of Australia.
    But it was good to see another bird I have never seen before and I think you for that.
    Well done mate.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    Thanks Gramps.
    It was taken in Sigatoka, Fiji back in April. Finally, I started to organise my photos in Adobe Bridge (I still don't like Lightroom), and noticed this one.
    If you look careful or in Flickr's photo, you might be able to tell that it was actually taken in an animal park. I would say the flash did a good job on disguising it.
