A cockatoo in my backyard

All these photos are of the same sulphur-crested cockatoo in rapidly changing light conditions. There were more cockies but they flew away when I came out with the camera. It was a very cold day, yesterday, with snow in lower areas than is usual. (Nikon D3000 on auto, cropped and overly-sharpened in GIMP)

I love the last image. The cockie glows in sunshine against the sullen sky.

Have a good day. 🙂

    Poor little fellow, he must have been freezing. Looks like he has fluffed his feathers up and it has made him look like a big white budgie in the last photo.
