Nice picture and great note. I love parrots very much. I had a couple of them as pets for sometime. They are just great birds. This is a very nice picture. The photographer is also very nice because he sent me a thank you note for a previous critique that I had written. Great going.

Yes, one has to be very careful about what is said in the company of a parrot. This one looks like a true sailor's companion. With a beak like that staring one in the face, it would be difficult to call it Polly. Nice texture captured in the beak, good dof and colour. I prefer it to be a little soft, if it was any sharper I would be expecting it to start screeching a speech.

Does he speak a lot? Beautiful angle of recording, very net image and colours are returned well.
Est-ce qu'il parle beaucoup? Bel angle de prise de vue, image très nette et les couleurs sont bien rendue.

Wonderful colors you have Mr. Parrot...
Panos, you made a very nice snap, perfect DOP, but I think you could have made your composition a bit to the right, just a few centimeters to eliminate the empty space on the left of the image.
Lovely picture nevertheless.

This shot is so cute! I love the way his head is tilted, with the questionalbe look of "what and why is this creature looking at me that way??"
Love the DOF, and how the bird is off centered. And I always look forward to your notes!

Superb close up of this animal! Could be sharper, perhaps, but very effective point of view and composition! Very engaging image.
