Cheeky galah

This is my most detailed shot of a rosy cockatoo ( also known as galah ) to date.

“The galah /ɡəˈlɑː/ (Eolophus roseicapilla), also known as the rose-breasted cockatoo, galah cockatoo, pink and grey cockatoo or roseate cockatoo, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia. Galahs are about 35 cm (14 in) long and weigh 270–350 g. Flocks of galahs will often congregate and forage on foot for food in open grassy areas. Their diet mainly consists of nuts, seeds & berries. Living in captivity galahs can reach up to 70 to 80 years of age when a good quality diet is strictly followed.” ( wiki)
