While I was busy with my camera in my office my curious Quaker Parakeet gave me a quizzical look as if to say, ‘what is that strange black thing in your hand?’. Well I could not let a moment like that slip by, so here is the photo I managed to capture of him at that moment. So cute!

It was quite dark in my office so you will notice the rather high ISO and the slow shutter speed I used to get this image. This still resulted in an under exposed image which I had to brighten in my processing software. Also you will notice that there is a little blurring caused by camera shake – to be expected with those camera settings and the fast action of been able to capture the photograph. However, I still thought that this was a cute image to share with you.
