I photographed these little fellows on the wonderful yellow waters cruise in the Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia. They were part of a larger group of Cockatoos that were playfully teasing each other as they flew round and round fighting for the best place to perch. Birds were even using their beaks to grab onto the tail feathers of the bird in front of them in the same way a child might playfully tug on a playmates hair or jumper.

Adobe Lightroom 2.0 was used for basic processing of the original RAW file. Adobe Photoshop CS3 was then employed to boost color and make local tonal changes.

  1. Parrots are so cool. Always playing games and goofing off.
