Sulphur crested cockatoo

September 1, 2018

One of my most detailed in flight shots of a sulphur crested cockatoo. Pretty hard to nail the focus on the eye when the subject is this close & using shutter speed less than 1/1000s.
“The sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) is a relatively large white cockatoo found in wooded habitats in Australia, and New Guinea and some of the islands of Indonesia. In some parts of Australia, the sulphur-crested cockatoo can be very numerous, and may cause damage to cereal and fruit crops, newly planted tree seedling, and soft timber on houses and outdoor furniture. Consequently, they are sometimes shot or poisoned as pests. Government permit is required, as they are a protected species under the Australian Commonwealth Law.” (wiki)
