Snuggle Heaven

Uploaded: November 10, 2003


28-70 at 70mm, 1/80th at f/6.3, flash bounced off ceiling -.7EV. Thanks to Athena. I had about given up on trying this with a tripod and then I saw what she did in "Separation Anxiety" and tried again. I didn't crop as close as I didn't think a bird snuggling in a shoulder is as readily identifiable as a child. BTW, there is nothing in the world like the feeling of a cockatoo snuggling her soft, warm feathers against the skin on your neck. I hope this photo expresses that. :-)

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
