I've not posted any images for a while now, due to bad health, but I finally managed to go to the park for an hour last week. Nothing too fancy, just some of the local residents. I hope you like them though.

1. Grey Heron in the snow.

2. I like the wintery quality of these close-ups.

Then I stumbled upon a couple of Rose-ringed Parakeets. I always love to photograph them, but those damn long tails!!

5. So how about a close-up then?

6.
And then there were these pretty Black-headed Gulls lined up.

Great shootin'. The Parakeets are especially cool.

Sorry to hear you haven't been well Levina. All the best, hope you are back to 100% soon.

Sweet shots Levina. Kind of odd to see a parakeet in the snow.
