I had gone out to see how the Hadedha chicks were doing (they should be flying within the next day or two) when I noticed two parrots gaily eating away at the pink flowers on the tree. I have no idea what tree it is for those of you who want to know 🙂 I had my camera with me with which had a 250mm lens on it but it just wasn’t reaching out far enough to get a clear shot, so I rushed back inside and put on my 500mm lens. Using this large lens without my tripod is quite something! But I need to get used to it, so it was a good exercise.
It is a wonder how many people will walk through their gardens with their eyes cast downwards looking at the lawn and flowers in the beds. They never take the time to see what is happening above them. And I think this is how many people approach their lives. They just don’t take the time or opportunity to see that there is a lot more going on around them.
