Parakeet for oscarromulus
It does have a curious look while posing like that. Love the colors. Well done, Deborah. TFS. Best wishes,
Great capture of a London Ring-necked Parakeet. I love the pose and POV and you've captured it sharply with pleasing bokeh BG, set in a fine composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
Good POV - like the eye. Very good colours also. I have only managed to see them once in the UK - in a park in SW London.
I am surprised to know that you have this bird in England in plenty. Yes, it is a very common bird in India. Very cocky and confident of itself, and noisy too.
I remember one that used to land on our dining table in the open verandah of our house in Ajmer, Rajsthan, (mid 80s) to partake of the lunch. It would sometimes even perch on our heads or shoulders to show integrity with our family, particularly at mealtimes :-)!
It happened during monsoons when hundreds of them screeched merrily in the tamarind trees in our garden. It stopped visiting us after about a week and we missed it!
Sorry for the long tale.
This is a wonderful capture of this bird in a park in London. The image is sharp and the colours are beautiful.
I am truely, TRUELY, "touched" by your generosity.
It is very true that I love birds, specially PARROTS.
I've owned a few when a younger person.
This ring-necked type, male, does mimic human voice.
However, even when hand raised, they can and do deliver
nasty bites. Shall write to you, seperately, to THANK YOU
This is, again, a great register; in fact:
Those eyes ... he is "posing" just for you.
Fond and grateful regards,
I have never managed a picture of these, they always taunt me from the tree tops :) Lovely bright colours and good light
Hi Deborah, great picture of the parakeet.
Great colours and detail.and DOF well done..
Hi Deborah, lovely parakeet, great details and excellent sharpness, splendid light and colors, wonderful pose, very well done, BRAVA! ciao Silvio
An excellent composition and pose. Very beautiful colors and sharp detail in that amazingly green plumage. You caught just a nice spotlight effect of light. Looks great.
Lol, I wish we got them down here! It would be nice to have these colourful birds flying free down here. Love the pose and the way he's looking back at you.
another fine capture from you, you manage to get this so lovely pose with nice eye contact, looks like the bird is giving poses for you,
well saturated colours, sharp image, nice compositiom, i miss the tail here but still a very good shot,
tfs & regards
What a beautiful parakeet! The colors are smashing, wonderful details, and a priceless expression on his face. Just wonderful!

il lui manque un petit bout de queue mais j'adore comme le soleil illumine la tête de ce bel oiseau.
