A flock of 25-30 sulphur-crested cockatoos joined us in the botanical gardens today. They were happily demolishing the freshly-laid grass in the new extension area.
We were able to sit amongst them as they rootled around, grumped at each other, fought the lizards and propositioned their prospective or actual mates.
The Other Photographer will have photographs of them interacting on the ground. I practised shooting them in the air. The camera rig now weighs about 4kg, so it takes a bit of hefting to get a shot.
Here are some of the results.
