Default 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.

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!
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!

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.

That fellow would look more in character with a big macaw on his shoulder and a patch over one eye! 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.
