The King of Parrots 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia

The King of Parrots 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia
This is a photo of a female electus parrot, otherwise known as a king parrot. It is the next shot in my "Birds of Bloedel Series." The electus parrot is native to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea, and Northeast Australia. The photo was taken in January 2014, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

P.S. For those who may not know, I have left Ipernity and reactivated my old Flickr account (still Barra1man). Like many who have already left Ipernity, the censorship, negativity, and the closure of many of my favourite groups left me little choice. Unfortunately, Ipernity will become a smaller, more insular group. However, I will miss all of my Ipernity friends. I hope to see some of you on Flickr, and I will return to Ipernity from time to time to admire your fine photography.

All the best,
Alan

Beautiful portrait! I thought I recognize this bird. Every now and then a king parrot is visiting our backyard and I recognize his/her call. Sometimes I spot it, sometimes it is hidden in the tree. Always nice to hear it.
