Thanks to all for superb Superb Parrot photos.  I realise that it’s quite tricky getting the aspect, pose and branch right for the context, so not sure if we’re there yet.  I’ll pass those I’ve received on to the developer, but if anyone has any more please send them too.

Does anyone have, or is able to take, a photo of a male Superb Parrot perched (or possibly in flight) with no obscuring branches or leaves other than the one perched on? 


We need a photo for the top banner of the new website and it is proving difficult to find one suitable.  The contractor’s best effort at the moment is below, using a female parrot that doesn’t have the crowd appeal of a male, and doesn’t match in colour the gold text (as a male would).


The concept is as shown – a bird perched notionally in the tree behind it – so we’d need a bit of perch branch visible and an otherwise unobstructed bird, not to mention aesthetic beauty and technical excellence.


If anyone has a suitable photo this is a chance for great web fame.  It’s needed in the next week or 10 days, so if you do have something that might be suitable please send it to me and I’ll pass it to our website developer.
