This morning, it was such a beautiful autumn morning – with a little haze, still the sun coming through. And although I had a lot of household tasks that urgently needed to be done, I felt I should spend at least 1 hour to go out and make some photographs, making use of the beautiful light. Actually, I had in mind to go make some images of the green ringnecked parakeets. I had discovered a place where they are feeding regularly and where I hoped to be able to make some great pics. Sadly, while I did find them on the spot I had in mind, the light came from the ‘wrong’ direction, and I didn’t really succeed in getting any good shot from them… That’s something I have to try once again soon, on another time of day, I guess. On my way there, I noticed lots of gulls on the lawn between the huge apartment buildings, all foraging. So I gave them some attention too… And luckily, a few are those shots turned out quite nice…
