CommentI decided to choose this image for this competition as my experience with this bird was something special and I only have handful of images that I could call "okay or fair ". He looked cute with the fluffy immature feathers. His head and beak looked mature. Images were captured at eye level laying on grass. He seemed to have a ravenous appetite and had his head down feeding on grass seeds and flowers without a break throughout my time with him and this shot was a rare opportunity and I am satisfied with his pose. . Vibrance and saturation are not edited . Colours you see in the image are his natural . I sharpened the image and cropped minimally. I believe this is an immature parrot but I wondered why he has mixed features of a immature and a mature parrot . Possibility of mutation has been raised .
