That's commonly called Seven Sisters. Actual name is Jungle Babbler.

Wow ! That is a great shot TG, agree with shaju. It got a message in there, being dressed formally means that guy is in his working hours and still finds time to spend with his baby. Which most of us wouldn't do or our life style doesn't allow ! Great ! Keep em coming !

@Shaju
Thanks man. What lens did you shoot the parrot with?

@Scorcher
Thanks. Well, he just returned from a flight and appeared with his baby for the shoot. So you are right in every sense of the word. They were a lovely pair.

TG, thats done with a 'poor man's' telephoto lens the 70-300 VR II ! Infact a 135mm was enough for it, because they were in group and busy eating the fruit, not bothered about the paparazzis.

Shed your egos and be nice to your society !!

Correct me if i am wrong but Currently there is only one D645 available from Pentax and that is only available in Japan and its not Full Frame its Crop MF kit.

Rest of 645 camera from Pentax will still use 120/220 film.

Shaju,

Nice shots. We should get more "Lens Heads" for these meets.

Here are some of mine, some of them might be considered as overly processed, but I am happy. I took something that was boring, shot in mid-day harsh light and made it into something interesting. What do you guys think?
