  2. Rosellas are so beautiful and I especially like the first photo of the bird walking across the grass. I don't get them around my house at all although I know Pale-headed Rosellas are in the district.

  8. I am just wondering what camera you use that can zoom so far to catch a photo of a bird. Is it an automatic compact or DSLR ? or is the bird caged ?
