This sulphur-crested cockatoo had lunch of those red berries on a palm tree. And as you can see it had a bit of flirt with me and my camera.
Sulphur-crested cockatoos are relatively big birds. As they are also curious and rather noisy they are easy to find and fun to watch.

Australia seems to be paradise for nature lovers.
This is excellent close-up capture of this cockatoo.You´ve coped here perfectly with DOF to create the expressiveness of this scene.

Interesting candid of the beautiful cockatoo in its natural habitat including the colorful berries.
We do not have cockatoos in the wild in the U.S. so we have to see them in the zoos here.
Thanks for sharing,
