Parrot Head

It's that time again. "i heart macro" Sundays with Lori from studio waterstone
The shot of this "Parrot Head" was one I took on a family trip to Hawaii. We took a drive around Maui and stumbled upon a gorgeous park with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean full of luscious flowers and beautiful birds. This parrot was more than happy to pose for me. (I think he was used to it, with all the tourists).

  8. He's simply gorgeous! Wonderful shot!
    I don't know if I could have captured this. Parrots always make me nervous. . .they always seem so 'snappy' with their big, strong beaks. Thankfully, there are souls like yourself that will brave proximity to those big birds!

  11. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. I used to own two birds - not quite as large as this one, so I am very comfortable around them and he definitely didn't seem to mind!!
