    its very hard to get a good picture of petrie as he is scared of the camera. but i can try.

    i took this picture tonight of petrie and his green patches on each wing tip, they arent the greatest quality but you can definitely see the color difference:



    this is another one i was able to get tonight that i just think looks neat:

    Looks to me like he is getting ready to molt. Mine do that, around the neck and belly mostly - sometimes a couple weeks out even.

    I had a GCC with bright orange patches in the exact same spot and I never figured it out. Maybe it's just like how some people have freckles...
