This was taken at Bowmanville Zoo at about 2ish. Harsh light, but i really couldn't help it because, well, i don't have any controll over the sun now, do i ;-) Anyway, Simple shot, at the right place at the right time, and after 50 or so trys, got what i was looking for. Taken with the Sigma 75-300 i borrowed! Love the lens, oh, and also... this was HAND HELD! so I'm a little bit suprised how it turned out

I haven't been to that zoo since I think first grade! Maybe second grade, but I don't think you were in my class then. for some strange reason i feel connected to the subject of the picture ^_^

Hey Ben! Cool colorful entry! Parrots are interesting subjects indeed. I like how the one on the right is scratching himself and the one of the left looks like he's saying "Ohmygawd! Yay! Photo op! I must show my nonexistant teeth!" Cause he's smiling crazy.

Heyz! I knew I would find it eventually :-P I like the composition and it's a fine example of proper bokeh. Parrots always make for an interesting subject ;-) The highlights seem a tad bright, tho it might just be my monitor. Hope this does well, good luck! :-D

LOL. The look on the left bird's face mirrors the fun mood perfectly.

I would like it better if the top of the right bird's head were in focus.

nice shot! the background does add interest, since it's like a partial canopy. if it were all white or all greens, that wouldn't do it.

I already voted, now back for comments. I gave you a 9 on this shot. Lovely colors, crisp detail, nice subject and bokeh.

The strength of the white space in the background overpowers the focus on the birds.....

It's nice that you captured two birds, however I think the bird on the left is a bit of a distraction. The bird on the right has nice sharp focus and the bokeh to the right blends well. Could probably be better a vertical crop with only the one bird.

Wonderful capture. I would have liked to see the bird on the right a little lighted up, though. Maybe dodge his face a little.. he's sort of hidden in shadows, especially compared to the other bird.
