Close-up on Léa the Cape Parrot

Was having some fun today with my +4 close-up filter on my 50mm lens (in short, I was trying to create a "poor man's" macro lens). I did try it out on a number of birds, but the Littles were moving a bit too much for me to get clear picture of them with the filter on, however Léa cooperated very nicely!

Here, on the last picture, you can see how she fluffs up in a way and hides her lovely coral feathers on her wings with her body and head feathers.
