Hehe this one's him! ;)
Yeah.. he's quite orange usually, but the sunlight was really warming, and it just made him appear like this! I love getting decent light.. for once I can use an ISO less than 1000!

Haha yes.. That would have confused him a bit.. I have yet to chirp at him though. I chuff quite a bit though, and he responds!

and you do it great to i wish i had that kind of light, but then open hours of the Zoo.s are terrible in Sweden makes it very hard you only get the midday harsh light

Ok that's annoying.. It's a similar timing here, but the light is best at around 16:00-17:00

i Sweden its waaaaaayyy to bright and they close the zoo they are only open in summer and the best light i have is on the 2 weekends that they are open in winter and fall but if im unlucky it could be cloudy

Oh that sucks.. It must be really annoying that they only open in the summer!
I always like the muted winter light..

Cloudy is always better than harsh light though!
