    Pictures of my birds from today (More pictures added June 5th)

    Took some pictures this morning.
    It was overcast and the light wasn't the greatest but I just felt like taking pictures.

    I'll start with one of Shade. She wasn't being cooperative this morning, although she usually likes to pose. She was all about eating and didn't really care for the camera. So here is a shot of her when she finally decided to lift her head out of the bowl for a few seconds.



    Zuri...Zuri is obsessed with my camera. Not so much for sitting in front of it as much as trying to get to it, most of the time from my shoulder. Eventually, when she finally caught on that I was not going to let her anywhere close the camera, she started posing nicely. I love this one, mostly because of the lighting.



    Joey was having fun playing with pieces of wood, well that is until Zuri starting running after him (to steal whatever piece of wood he was playing with).
    Oh and I LOVE his eyes. Zuri and Petey also have red eyes, but they aren't nearly as vibrant as Joey's.



    Petey was on the play gym the furthest away from the windows, meaning natural light was minimal. She kept moving around, which was rather annoying since when I finally managed to properly focus, she moved a split second later. However, I did manage to get a few shots of her, and my favorite has to be this one. Mid stretch shot.



    And although this is in "Other parrots", I'll sneak in a shot of Piper. She was also far from the windows when I took this and the lighting isn't the greatest. I think she was about to fluff-up and shake it off when this was taken.



    I might have other pictures to post, but I have to go through them first.

    wonderful shots, natacha - they're all great, and do each one of your birds justice. with the wings-open shot, did you take multiple frames, or did you just get lucky?

    I love the shot of Petey mid stretch. What an awesome catch! They are all great though.

    These were taken with a Pentax K20D (I upgraded since the last time I talked about cameras).
    The lighting is mostly natural light. Petey and Piper were under a fluorescent bulb and a full spectrum bulb and those made for most of the lighting on their pictures.

    It's just so sweet when birds hold things in their little hands.
    Petey looks so adorable playing with her little flower! You are making me melt, again!
