IOTW this week goes to some bloke called David Stowe? Who presented a delightful photo of one of Australia's rarest birds, the Orange-bellied Parrot. Congratulations Dave!

Such a fragile, precious bird....crisp shot, love the back ground, love the perch especially with the orange lichen on it...
Simple, beautifully executed portrait, great perch!
A stunner of such a rare bird.
