Hi all,

I haven't been around in a while :( although I'm trying to get more online and photography time. I'd like to share some pictures of my beautiful parrot. She is a yellow sided green cheek Conure and obviously hand reared and beautifully loving.

Sadly she died on Monday after being anethatised for an x-ray after she had a problem with her foot from an accident last Saturday. It was apparantly a less than 1% risk of her dying while being under. Tragically it has to be her :(

RIP my sweet baby girl.

(Parrot eyes always amaze me with the beautiful bobbling around the eye :))

Thank you for looking.

Ditto, it is a sad time when you lose a friend, pets unfortunately get our love and leave us heartbroken. She looks like she was a beautiful bird and you captured her eye beautifully.

amazing detail, strange 'lashes'. Sad about her demise, judging by the parakeets that come to my feeder I can imagine they make great pets full of character.

What a magnificent parrot Lisa, I'm saddened by the loss of her. :( Lovely shots, I hope you have lots of shots to remember her by. It's always sad to see a beloved pet pass on, especially from such a routine thing.

Beautiful capture Lisa. Reminded me instantly of my little childhood friend "dusty"...a Dusky Conure that went everywhere with me. Would ride in my shirt, claws poking through to hang on as he leaned his back against my chest and poked his little head out of the neck of my shirt. I would skakeboard around with him...just fantastic little friend.
He too left me way to early one night and I sadly feel your loss. Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures of her with us!

You've captured her beauty so wonderfully. So sorry to hear of her passing. My wife and I were so amazed with the beauty of your photo's then deeply sadden by reading your post of her passing. We are animal lovers ourselves and also have close family members who are not of the human sort. God bless you...

Hiya Lisa,
So sorry to hear of your loss, not that this is any consolation at least you have some wonderful shots to remember her.
I'm a strange ol fella I sometimes feel more upset at the loss of a loved pet that some fellow humans.

Huge hug for sad loss
Mark

WOW! Thank you all for your wonderful comments. She was/is a beauty. Little bird with huge character. Her fave past-time was sitting in my daughters hair. There are some videos of her doing what she loved best on the YouTube (external link).

Here's some additional photos taken by me & my husband. Just standard P&S's really.

Thanks for the videos Lisa, really enjoyed watching them :) She sure was a sweet thing, sad to see her go. Sadly, small animals don't take well to anaesthetics as a general rule (I have pet rats and mice).
