Sweet Shot Tuesday: Budgies

We went to the Franklin Park Zoo this week and one of the interactive animal exhibits is the Aviary with the Budgies.  Mr. No of course wanted seed sticks to feed them.  At first they were leery of hopping on his seed stick but they quickly warmed up to him.  This little guy, though, would only snack from the fence post and he was obviously not comfortable snacking in front of the camera.

  2. Even though he was wary, you got a great close up of him! Poor guy is self-conscious!

  3. What a beautiful shot! For some reason, birds always freak me out! My son had a field trip at a local zoo last year and all the kiddos and parents were feeding the birds like you guys were, and I got the heck out of there. ha! Maybe the Hitchcock movie has stuck in my mind? But this little guy looks harmless enough. Again... beautiful photo.
