"Kea birds have distinctive feathers that are primarily green-brown in color, providing them with effective camouflage in their natural environment. However, once spread, their feathers offer a kaleidoscope of colors. It is this combination of subtle and striking coloration that makes the kea bird's feathers so unique. I photographed this preening kea in Fiordland National Park.
