Rose Hiller

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.

 

shot from car (a great mobile bird hide :)
