black cockatoo

Walking the dogs at LBG this morning, we came across a flock of about 30+ Black Cockatoos. Unfortunately I didn’t get great shots of them, but here’s a few samples.

I love your photographs, Ben_Dover! I wish these were my best ones, I’d be so happy. (Mind you, I only have my smart phone…)

Many thanks all, I’m flattered.

I’m upgrading my camera in the next month or two, (Canon 450D to Canon 60D,) will also be looking at new lenses.

So prepared to be bombarded with images! (Sorry Johnboy!)

As wonderful as it would be if these were Carnaby’s, these are Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos

We call these the “Rainbirds”, because when we hear them fly over us, it rains shortly afterwards.

If you don’t get f2.8 lenses with your upgrade then I suspect a lot of potential in your upgrade will be wasted.

All these blacks look the same to me. (Can I say that? :-) )
