I know this won't do well because people won't believe it's non-domesticated. We live on a private lake and we have lots of birds and mallards. We have this parakeet and a peach face love bird who come here daily. They mix right in with the rest of the wild birds and mallards. When they first started coming here we couldn't believe our eyes. Since reading it's not unusal for these to be seen here in Texas. There is a town not too far away that even started having so many there that they did a story on the news about it.

I took this picture while he was sitting on the back of our basketball goal.

I love this image, and also your other budgie one, as I used to have three averies and breed budgies. I have a cute pet budgie called Buddy, and I think he will be my first subject, re if I ever do some photographs.

What a cute little budgie! I had a sweet little budgie for 7 years until he passed away. It would be nice to live somewhere they were wild. Your picture is really good, the colors are great and the composition is good, too. I like the blurred background.

Bump up the contrast on this one. Use a lighter background to increase the interest to the subject. but allaruond a good image. good luck

The light blue bird against the green looks beautiful. I love it.

Pretty subject. Nice composition. Good DOF. The focus could have been a little sharper on the bird imo.
