When I saw Beth's challenge for this week, I knew what I wanted to get. My nephew makes THE BEST mean face. So, I followed him around for hours on Sunday trying to capture this expression. And he would wait until I would set the camera down for a few seconds to make the face. Plan: fail.
Onto Plan B. My African Grey parrot LOVES the camera. In fall of 2007, I took this picture:
Of course parrots express themselves with words, but I think they have great physical expressions as well. Cagney is a nervous bird. (You'll see she's a feather picker. The bald spot on her chest is a nervous habit. When I first got her, she looked a lot worse.) But she is completely at home with having her picture taken. So, without further adieu I present: Expressions of Cagney.
Best Buds. Sorta. (She can be mean!)
