Feathered friends - Crimson Rosella

These lovely Crimson Rosellas come around most afternoons to feed on the plants out the front. I'm happy enough with these shots, taken with the zoom lens, but I would like to get even closer.

I've managed to get reasonably close by advancing quietly a step at a time and whistling at them a bit. Doesn't always work, if they're hungry enough to want to keep feeding you could get quite close. Maybe within 3-4 metres.

Hi River, yes, I was a probably more than a few metres away and with zoom but will hopefully be able to get closer next time I see them. They're so beautiful!
