Day 151 Parakeet


Parakeet

This bird was rescued by Lise in the cities. She brought it home and it is staying with us until we find a permanent home for it. The Parakeet took some time to get used to the place but is now making more noise. I decided that the new member of the home should be photographed and was amazed by how well shooting through the cage wires worked. I had read about the technique of photography in zoos where you shoot through mesh or wires putting the camera as close to it as possible and using a very wide apature. It really works. This was made looking through vertical bars and you can't tell. The only time I could tell there were bars was when they made shadows from the flash. All in all I like this portrait of our temporary guest and got to practice a new technique.
