Ubiquitous and beautiful, around Canberra the Crimson Rosella is a sitting duck for photographers BUT....
1. the absolute redness of its plumage is hard to nail, and
2. it challenges the photographer to take a different perspective on this oft-shot species.
Here, this lovely bird sits atop some by product of a local winery at Wallaroo Road near Hall, the last vestiges of light illuminated the brilliant plumage.
