Just so you understand. In the park where the pic of me covered in Rosella’s was taken I could just as easily been covered in Sulphur-crested cockatoos. Except for one thing, fear!!! Like the black cockatoo in the image above … Continue reading
This is my first attempt at filming with my new Canon 7D. I did some rudimentary editing but trimming the quality and size to something appropriate to the web is still to come. I don’t have editing software so its … Continue reading
