:wow2: some stunning images David :clap3:

The Papuan frogmouth is a remarkable species and quite unlike any other bird group in the world.

:wow: What a fantastic collection of photos David! Stunning birds ... the Sun Conure is very striking but I think my favourite is the Laughing Kookaburra who has something of a mischievous look about him/her.

:thanks1: so much for sharing those.

Brilliant photos David, I particularly like the Frogmouth :grin:
Do you mainly concentrate on wildlife outside the UK or do you work here as well?

I try photograph anything I see, but often find when at home in the UK I don't always have the right kit with me for wildlife pics whereas abroad I always make sure I have the right lenses with me - this means I tend to take more pics outside the UK

Beautiful bird photos David. I love the Sun Conure, it has been one of all time favourite birds since I first saw them at Marwell zoo some years ago. Quite a few of those in your pictures are new to me :clap:

:wow: More superb photos David :cool2: Re: your last photo ... I have always wanted to photograph a Peacock with its tail in display mode and thought I had my chance two summers ago at Woburn Safari Park. Unfortunately, due to the time of year, it had moulted its tail feathers!!! I was extremely miffed :giggle:
