CommentI found Red-capped Parrots to be very wary of humans. It took 3 days of watching them come in to feed on the Dryandra (now Banksia) late in the afternoon to get this image. I particularly like the way the late afternoon light has enhanced the vibrancy of his brilliant colours. He keeps a close watch on me as he feeds.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mk II with 100-400 mm lens Mk II with 1.4 extender; f 8, 1/640 sec., ISO 2000
LocationDryandra Woodlands, Western Australia
