Sulphur Crested Cockatoo
in Mansfield, central Victoria.
These birds are very common and considered a bit of a pest ( they chew out timber window frames with enthusiasm.
These shots are with the 16-85 VR DX lens - 85mm, f9 and 1/400. Casting a critical eye on these shots i think the bokeh from the lens is not that good at all and detracts from the photos.
it would be good if i had the 105mm 2.8 at the time to compare results - as it happens both shots were cropped down to the equivalent of what the 105 would have taken.
