You Capture: The Color Red

This week's You Capture challenge was the color red.

On Sunday, I set out around my parent's house to find the perfect color red shot. My mom's car is red, so I took different shots of different parts of the car, but this one ended up being my favorite.



But that was really the only decent one that I got, so I was all set to just post that one and then I walked by Cagney's cage. Cagney is an African Grey Parrot. Greys have RED tails!

Now, I realize that you may be getting sick of Cagney pictures, but she has a RED tail. How could I not take pictures of it?

So, remember the last time when she nearly got hold of my lens, I but my bigger lens on my camera so that I wouldn't have to get so close to her. But she's a camera diva, and she didn't understand why I didn't want to take pictures of her face, so this turned into a dance of me moving to one side to try to get a shot, and as soon as I focused and shot, I got a blurred picture of her face. So, I'd move to the other side really quick and the same thing. Thirty minutes and 50 shots later, I had three or four decent ones and two good ones.

She's waving to you here. Obviously, she's not aware that I'm not taking a picture of her face.



After thirty minutes, I got pretty quick at the little dance game. Yeah.




And there you have the color red.

So you got your torso twists in last night then? What with all the back and forth, side to side motions? Love the tail feathers, and I really like the car shot with your reflection.

That is hilarious! She does sound like quite the little diva!! I love African greys. My parents used to have one, and he learned to bark like the dog. It was hard to tell the difference! Love the car shot as well!
