    Great choice, flash photography isn’t necessary at all because they are too bright.

  2. This ban has been in force for some time now.

    In general, I agree with it.

    Too many people now have a flash camera and the Major winners seem to suffer most – the exhibits are there to be looked at, not poked by all and sundry just for a poor quality image.

    As the official photographer for the Maryland Budgerigar Society in the USA, I have always thought that using flash photography isn’t necessary.

    I want a picture with a bird that is relaxed and I have noticed time and again, that flash photography only hinders your subject.
