Entry Description: One of the subjects I love to work with is birds. They are quirky, colourful, beautiful and full of personality. I always aim to capture shots of their sweet faces filling most of my frame, as these really convey their character and show their sentient nature – the cheeky glints in their eyes and the range of colours and details in their plumage are best seen up close.
Birds are very smart. They can learn tricks and mimic sounds and behaviours. They all have their own little senses of humour and get such joy out of simple things like their favourite fruit, a select toy, or playing a special game with their beloved human. I compiled a collection of my favourite bird images to show that these beloved feathered friends each have a personality of their own.
