Sunrise colours

Very, very early this morning I had a couple of visitors as I worked on the computer. Puki and Portia perched on Kelvin's shoulder. The light was just starting to slant through the windows of my office so I grabbed my camera and took some snaps of them posing before Puki's portrait which is hanging for the moment over the fireplace. Here's Puki. Handsome little devil.

Portia is growing in her adult plumage so is just a little scruffy. Typical teenager. Definitely not shy she pushes to the front every time.

Love their feathers in the yellow morning light. I think Puki was still half asleep. Portia was definitely the one showing off for the camera. We have these two for up to 30 years now and they should start breeding when they are around 3 years old. Phew! We still have a year or two before we hear the cheep cheep cheep of baby birds. Lots of time for these two to bond.

The colors are incredible Jo. You are too damn talented lady!

It's easy to take good photos of them. They are so damn pretty to begin with and don't get me started on what camera hogs they are. "Strike a pose Portia!"
