[Note Guidelines] הערת הצלם
The Kea is a large parrot about 48 cm (19 in) long and weighing about 1 kg (2.2 lb). It has mostly olive-green plumage with a grey beak having a long narrow curved upper beak. The adult has dark-brown irises, and the cere, eyerings, and legs are grey. It has orange feathers on the undersides of its wings. The feathers on the sides of its face are dark olive-brown, feathers on its back and rump are orange-red, and some of the outer wing feathers are dull-blue. It has a short and broad bluish-green tail with a black tip. Feather shafts project at the tip of the tail and the undersides of the inner tail feathers have yellow-orange transverse stripes.[15] The male is about 5% longer than the female, and the male's upper beak is 12–14% longer than the female's.[16] Juveniles generally resemble adults, but have yellow eyerings and cere, an orange-yellow lower beak, and grey-yellow legs.

Hello Sue,
A fine and natural picture of this special bird which I discovered here on TN from pictures of other members. I like especially the colors of its plumage. Fine presentation, eventually the contrast and sharpness could have been improved slightly with some PP work.
Kind regards
Anne

Very nice kea portrait!
Excellent capture with fantastic clarity, focus and splendid colours.

Bonjour Sue,
Le sujet me semble un peu trop "prisonnier" des couleurs de son environnement pour que l'on puisse apprיcier pleinement la finesse des dיtails et la dיlicatesse de ses couleurs.
A bientפt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
