Project 365/186 – On the Parrot Tree

Gettysburg05jul13-2928-Edit

Ho Humm, here I am sitting on the Parrot Tree. Not much to do other than to sit and look pretty. Surely there is something I can do to break the boredom. Don’t mind me…I’m going to sneak over to bother the boys.

They are such handsome boys. There they are in their blue resplendor. Shining so brightly in the sun. Maybe I can photo bomb them.

Hey that was kind of fun. I managed to break up the boy’s club. Now to go and flirt with the winner.

Oops !!! That didn’t work out quite like I thought it would. Oh well, it was at least entertaining for a bit.

  1. I learned something new about parrots when at the CA Academy of Sciences – parrots are sensitive to flashes of light – never knew that and will keep that in mind when photographing these colorful beauties (no flash on camera). Beautiful Captures – love watching parrots do their thing and interact with one another:) Happy Monday!

      • I love the richness of your colors. I go thru’ a similar thing – wondering at times whether I’ll lose the richness if I lighten/brighten. I LOVED your parrots, and they didn’t seem dark at all to me, Emily. But you are the expert, I just play with the camera for my therapy, and for sharing the chapeaux… 🙂
