    Amazing, Jack. I thought for sure that bird would fly away. A terrific capture.

Bird whisperer. Love the humor in your story about not trying with things that have claws and teeth. It is amazing to see her get this close and to be able to pet it is amazing. But your right, one never know why this can happen. Beautiful colors, love the composing, a blend of a gorgeous picture and fantastic story my friend.

I remember all too well trying to do this with a "tame" bird in an aviary a few years back. It didn't fly away either, but it left a small hole in my finger when it let me know it was quite unhappy! Very cool capture, Jack!

A wonderful story and capture Jack! Not many of our Aussie birds could handle that sort of attention!

Great capture, Jack!! Learned my lesson from a sociopathic parrot when I was just a wee lad...

Cool catch, Jack!
Those beaks can be as good as fangs... (from experience! :-)
