Parrot

Birds
by William Wordsworth

Happier of happy though I be,
like them
I cannot take possession of the sky,
Mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there,

One of a mightly multitude whose way

And motion is a harmony and dance

Magnificient.


P.S: The parrot was quite shy and refused to pose for me and hid behind the tree trunk.

That was a quick and good shot. Well taken. I appreciate your spontaneous thought. It is difficult to capture birds. Well done.

That was a nice shot. I love birds I always say to myself in my next life if ther is one I would like to be an eagle.

The bird has an attitude. He is showing off, perfectly aware that even if he slips, he can fly to safety. The same feeling we get when we have a safety net :-)

Nice picture...

@ Balaji - Thanks. :)

@Starry nights - Thanks. I love birds too.

@Alexis - Yes, the bird sure does have attitude. Thanks.

@Jackal - It must be real fun to have parrots at home. Do they speak? When I was in school a friend of mine had a parrot at home and it used to speak really well.
