Artist's Description

Blue-eyed Boy in my garden

Camera : Canon EOS 550D
This is Big Boy, an Indian Ring-neck Parrot (Psittacula krameri manillensis) that took up residence in my previous garden in Tarlton, Gauteng (South Africa).
.
When he arrived, I initially thought that he had escaped from someone’s aviary, but apparently they are native to Asia and Africa and are often seen in rural South Africa feeding from bird feeders or relaxing in parks. Further research showed that they are uncommon in South Africa with small populations established in Durban and at Sodwana Bay in Natal, as well as inland Natal, Mozambique, Gauteng (Randburg area) and even in the Free State.
.
This shot I took of him had me absolutely thrilled to see that he has blue eyes!
