Magnolia Blossoms In The Sun

I have two King Parrots in mating mode, that I’m trying to photograph.What’s this got to do with Magnolias?

Well, as is often the case ,when I have a large telephoto lens mounted on the camera trying to focus on a subject, other things come into the viewfinder.

My neighbour has a Port Wine Magnolia tree in her yard. The Blossoms were beautifully backlit from the morning sun.

I just wish those King Parrots, were as easy to focus on.
