Parrot II

12/20/11

Buenos Aires, Argentina. My son was at work. Lisa was down with dengue fever. I had the park to myself and wandered. I came upon a tree where the parrots were feeding. They would fly to the ground for a minute or so and then take off. While feeding they were content to let me get a little closer so that the big zoom could get some detail. I wonder if the Argentines think I’m as silly as I feel when tourists are taking pictures of the squirrels in Central Park.

  1. What a sweet photo. But of course, for me, that’s an exotic, while the locals think it’s like a pigeon. 🙂 Happy holidays to you, Victor!

    • Thank you. Pigeons. What a great example.

  2. Beautiful hues, Victor! But I like our squirrels and pigeons in Alaska, too. Perhaps they seem more like a nuisance in a city setting? You need moose in Central Park, I’ll bet.
