    Great colours - how did you get it to stay still long enough?

        calm birds

        Birds are very difficult to photograph. We often have 'safari' type holidays and I love the challenge of phtographing birds out in the wild.
        Even caged birds aren't that easy so I can truly appreciate your budgie photo!

          Thank you Paul. Aha! I am very fortunate that they are my Daughter's special pets and they are just sooo tame.

          Thank you Gallamist. The Budgies are really tame, but her Zebra Finches, no way, they weren't having a bar of this photography stuff.

          Thank you Jennifer and welcome to the DPS Family. You're going to have a lot of fun here, and if you are anything like me, learn a lot from the lovely friendly folk here as well. I am still learning after 2,000 or so entries.

            Nice shot,Pauline. Like the colors on this one. We started out with a pair of budgies many years ago,then to a cockatiel,then to a sulphur-crested cockatoo(my baby),and now we are the parents(?) of a Congo African Gray parrot. So we've seen quite a variety of colors. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed week,my dear friends.

                Cute shot! Man how I miss my budgies sometimes! I had 7 of them in a big aviary. They are SO much fun to watch!

                One thing to maybe look into though, the budgie's cere doesn't look as it should. It appears this bird may have mites. If so, it's a quick fix!

                  Thank you Whitewolf. Elaine has just been given an aviary with many birds, mostly juveniles, along with another smaller aviary of finches. A few more photo shots coming up for her Mumma.
                  God Bless my friend.

                  Thank you northilandkokako. If it's any help in getting cage shots, get right up close to the wire, zoom in, and the cage almost disappears. If you are taking wild animals, get up as close as you safely can with a zoom lens and the results are usually pretty good. I have learned with lots of trial and error, but I'm still learning.
                  This one was taken with:- F6.3

                  Thank you Katia for your comment and also the advice. I put it down to being juvenile birds and the feathers not having formed properly yet, but you could be right. I will pass that thought on to my Daughter. She has only just been given these birds, so is very much in the learning phase.
