Pink and grey Galah

JUNIOR – Winner

On several successive mornings, I noticed this flock of Galahs coming down to feed on their favourite Dune Cabbage. One morning I placed myself behind a small dune, in front of where the flock was heading, and waited. The light became magic just as this individual moved close enough.
