Tutinama (Tales of a Parrot) Tutinama, literal meaning "Tales of a Parrot", is a 14th-century Persian rendering of a series of 52 stories, containing 250 miniature paintings

Tutinama, literal meaning "Tales of a Parrot", is a 14th-century Persian rendering of a series of 52 stories, containing 250 miniature paintings. The illustrated version was commissioned by the Mughal Emperor, Akbar in the later part of the sixteenth century. Its creative history in the 14th century AD in Iran is also linked to an earlier ancient anthology of succession of ‘Seventy Tales of the Parrot’ in Sanskrit compiled under the title Śukasaptati (a part of katha literature) dated to the twelfth century AD. In Iran, as in India, parrots (in light of their purported conversational abilities) are popular as storytellers in works of fiction. The adventure stories narrated by a parrot, night after night, for 52 successive nights, are moralistic stories to persuade his owner not to commit any adulterous act with any lover, in the absence of her husband. The illustrations embellishing the stories created during Akbar’s reign, amply depict the theme of the stories through miniature paintings of impressionable effect. These were created in a span of five years after Akbar ascended the throne. The authorship of the illustrated miniature paintings’ version of Tutinama is credited to two Iranian artists named Mir Sayyid Ali and Abdus Samad who were in the court of Mughal Emperor Akbar. They illustrated the original Persian stories of Tutinama with beautiful miniature paintings. The Parrot addresses Khojasta, a scene from the Tutinama (1556-1565) paintings.

Callocephalon fimbriatum May 8th, 2010 Croydon, Victoria, Australia Olympus E620 Zuiko 70-300mm lens focal length: 169mm ISO: 800 shutter speed: 1/125sec aperture: f4.7 mode: Auto I was sitting in my car at some traffic lights on a relatively busy highway one sunny Saturday afternoon when I spotted a couple of birds in a Cotoneaster tree. I couldn't quite tell what they were at first, then I caught a glimpse of the magnificent scarlet coloured head feathers of one of the males. My heart instantly began racing, as these birds were basically at eye level not 10 metres away from the highway, seemingly oblivious to the noisy traffic nearby - the perfect opportunity to get some photo's of one of my favourite Australian birds. But.. I didn't have my camera gear! I was about 10 minutes from my house, but the drive home felt like an eternity. When I finally got home I raced inside, grabbed my gear & tore out of the driveway back to the spot, hoping, praying, that by some miracle the cockatoos would still be there. You can imagine my sheer joy when I pulled up in a side street & found the Gang-gang Cockatoos still happily gorging on the little red berries. And not just a couple of cockatoos, at least a dozen of them! I spent the next two hours quietly observing & photographing these beautiful birds. They barely lifted an eye to my presence as they fed on the Cotoneaster berries, allowing me to get quite close. I was very cautious not to get too close however, I didn't want to do anything to cause them to become alarmed. I counted 14 cockatoos in the flock, although I'm not sure that was all of them as they were stretched out over a patch of trees spanning about 15 metres & were constantly moving about hunting the next bunch of berries to feast on. This photo of a male Gang-gang is my favourite of the gigs of images I captured during the session. The slightly raised crest, the way he is grasping the bunch of berries with his claw & the feeding action with his tongue make this the standout image for me.

Rainbow did it get that name? I've always thought these colorful birds are amazing!
