  1. WOW !!! What lovely shades of green !!! Loved the yellow head – it made a great contrast. :) The sharp tails and the beaks – captured very well. :)

  2. Hmmm…I was not home and missed these pictures! Each and every picture is beautiful…the birds look very comfortable sitting and watching the world here on the branches of their favourite tree. They blend well with the leaves and yes, it is difficult to differentiate between the leaves and the birds!

    The last one, is so beautiful…you have photographed the eyes so well! She is a happy cat!

    Me – He, it’s a he – his name is Sher Khan alias Puppy.
