CommentSo when faced with a very relaxed bird at very close range I always go for a portrait after I have captured enough full bird shots. Here is a great example and the angle of the head just added a personality touch I really enjoyed. I suspect this may be my best bird portrait to date. I really liked the complementary colour of the background which blends so well with the earthy beige on the bird's plumage.
