Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote and leave a comment.

Another trip to the cemetery near my place to try and capture these ringnecks. People feed them daily at about the same time in the evening so the lighting is always great for pictures. They often perch themselves on a fence that have palm trees in the background so their bright green color agains the palm leaves is striking.

I was a bit disappointed that I ran out of time to submit this shot instead. If I had 30 more seconds, this would've been my submission, (and i think it would've done better, but who knows.)

Other outtakes that I considered:

beautiful shot. I have two of these Indian Ringnecks, a tame hand reared female and a not so tame male. :)

Looks like a bird my father used to have, it meowed. yes, meowed. He thought he was a cat.

Back to the picture. This is a beautiful distribution of green on green. Nice focus. A little sharper and I think it really would have jumped off the page. Great putting it in the left of the frame. Well done.
