I been away in Tasmania for a couple of weeks - so if I did not reply to one of your comments it may have been due to technological limitations, rather than my bad manners!
I'm trying to get organised so this is just a quick post.
One morning I found a Green Rosella below one of the large windows of the house we were renting. Unfortunately it was stone dead. I could not help but notice the beautiful plumage - or be reminded of a certain Monty Python sketch!
I was half asleep, but I was also aware of the bird lice walking about on the parrots feathers, so it was all a bit rushed! When I found one on my leg I gave up and went to get a cup of tea! When I got back to the parrot, the ants had found it as well!
So,this is the best image I came up with!
You can find more macro images here at Macro Monday.
Enjoy the close ups.
