You don't need to tell me that this is not the greatest photo of a black cockatoo. It does capture the colour of his/her tail though. I did complain about them not cooperating with me and letting me photograph their tails in this post. So, on a later visit to Balgal Beach I stalked them while they were feeding in a casurina tree and getting up to all sorts of mischief at the same time. The cockatoos that is, not me. This was the best tail photo I snapped.
You can see why any photography enthusiast would want to capture that. I'll keep trying to do better though.
