Pair of Lovebirds
6

These are Galahs, sometimes known as Pink Cockatoos, here in Australia. Gorgeous birds although can get very rowdy (noisy). It's currently mating and nesting season here.

Technically this shot probably wouldn't win a photo comp because of the leaves in front of the birds being in focus, rather than the birds behind. However, the image still works and made the front page of a local paper here which was a lovely surprise - the editor approached me when he saw the image shared in a local Facebook community group. Lots of people have loved it and the local community group are currently using it as their header too.

As photographers we want our photos to be perfect and see every fault, but the general public often don't - they just see the beauty of the picture, rather than the imperfections.

Taken with P950
