Some shots while she was playing around with me, the lens hood really got her angry so I had to take it off before she relaxed a bit...

pentax K110D kit lens, minor adjustments in aperture

By the look of that beak I wouldn't want to get her angry either.
Nice shots, beautiful Parrot.

The African grey parrot has got to be one of the most charming parrots. The African grey parrot has a wonderful character, a combination of intelligence and charm. African grey parrots have been kept as pets for over 4000 years. The Egyptians are thought to be the first to keep the African grey parrot as pets, as depicted in their hieroglyphics. The Greeks also highly valued the African grey parrot as pets, as did the Romans who kept these intelligent birds in highly ornate cages. The tradition of keeping the African grey parrot continued with King Henry VIII keeping one as a pet. Today, the African grey parrot is still kept as a prized pet.

She's certainly a pretty bird. How interesting that the lens hood bothered her so much - I wouldn't have thought it would make a difference.
