Day 9 of 30 Pets

This guy is (I think) a Single Yellow-Headed Amazon. He is a shelter resident as a result of a cruelty case. Long story, but he stays with us till a court decides whether or not his owner can have him back. He's in the Big Boss's office and has relaxed enough to start talking a bit. He also got company in the form of an African Grey who is also a talker. Entertaining office to hang out in these days :-)

Had to use the flash so lighting is a little harsher than I'd like.

PP - converted from RAW, rotated, cropped, burnt out background, increased contrast and saturation, dodged/burnt bird a bit, resized, sharpened.

Gorgeous shot, incredible detail in the feathers! He looks great against the black background. Don't you just hate some humans?

Wow! Great detail!! Really pretty bird, the black background works really nice to set off the color of his feathers.

Wow, I'd like more dirt on the court case.

Nice detail on the shot.
