Parakeet at Hari Raya – Bayan Nuri

Burung Bayan Nuri
Just back from short raya holiday, and start working today.
Hari Raya Aidil-Fitri never stop me from bird photography. I got this at 10.08am, just after raya prayer at my mother-in law’s backyard.
This Long-tailed Parakeet always show-up during Raya holiday (the same species I captured last raya holiday)

  1. Tabib excellent shot. Love how you captured it on the white background, usually one would get the back light. Thanks for sharing, Anna 🙂

  2. Thanks ALL for your comments.There were six parakeets perched at the dead mango tree that day, but due to narrow angle telephoto I only managed to shot four.The Sun was at the back of the subject at 10am, so I have to compensate the exposure to +2EV with added flash.I one where the birds preening, flash failed to fired, that caused the total white background after post-processed. The two pictures above were with flash, so slightly better blue background.
