Hitchhiker surprise
 
This gentleman was a bit surprised when when this cockatiel decided to land on his shoulder and take a ride through the Aviary. I think he was curious about his beard. :D

The man was was very co-operative and stood still while a took several shots. He's an interesting looking character, I only wish I had asked him for for his name and number, I would have sent him a copy.

Then, he flew off and landed on this boys head, the little boy didn't know what to think! :D
The photo came out way under exposed and when I brightened it up it was pretty noisy and not very sharp but, you can still see the curious expression on the birds face. I thought it was hilarious! :sport-smiley-004:

LOL! Priceless photos, I can imagine how the boys weren't quite sure what to think. The first one is really nice, both of your subjects are interesting.

A very interesting looking character in #1.

Ha ha - great look on the bird's face - who me ?!

Thank you both, glad you seem to enjoy them as much as I did. :)

That fellow would look more in character with a big macaw on his shoulder and a patch over one eye! :paranoid1: Nice of him to let you take his picture, though.

Funny you should mention that, I was just thinking the same thing and considering may be doing a photo shop conversion to see what I could come up with. :cool:
