Another few shots of these guys to be posted following a trawl through my archive and some post-processing; these were all taken in Edinburgh Zoo

Canon EOS 400D 1/60 second F/2.8 ISO 100 100 mm

As always, comments are welcome, particularly those offering feedback and criticism on my images! (It's the only way I'll learn!) :)

Richard_Irwin from Belper, United Kingdom

Nice one, it looks straight at you and appears to be quite a character.

Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

I'm guessing the softness was intentional, and what a colour the bird has, lovely.

@Observing: Yep, I played with the vibrance and saturation to give it a different feel

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

wow . . this is so expressive. I quite expect to get a pecked nose !
