Caught this fellow doing his thing at a local garden shop (Simon’s Seed) in Leesburg, Florida. His colors were brighter than the flowers! This was shot with a Nikon D7000.

    Beautiful parrot and photo!

  • Thanks, Ellen. They are beautiful, but I don’t trust them. They have one nasty bite!

    What a beauty! I just had cataract surgery this morning and the colors in this are so bright with my “done” eye, especially the blue. And here I thought I’d been seeing colors fine!

  • Isn’t it wonderful what you can now see? Have you had both done yet? I had eyelid surgery today to lift the eyelid-not cosmetic. It was not a lot of fun. Good luck with your eye drops!!!

    This is my first eye…hopefully I’ll get the second one done in February. Things are ultra-bright right now and still somewhat blurry, but that will pass. My opthomologist said I should have the eyelid surgery, that it was interfering with my vision, but so far I have resisted.

  • right now is not a good time for me to comment on the eye surgery. Will tell you once the swelling goes down!!!

    Bless his beautiful feathers! He is so cute!

  • He was a cutie. He lives at a local nursery/feed store. They are beautiful, but so mean. Thansk for stopping by, BlueMoonRose.
