Thank you all for your comments and votes yesterday, today some more of Topaz feathers, for the people who did not see the message I added yesterday, it is below if you want to see Topaz.

Hi Everyone.
Just had a row off She who must be obeyed, we have had Topaz for now over 31 years, put it down to my age, she is caged because they do a lot of damage, when we first had her she was just on a stand, we went out and returned to damage of over 1,000.00, she had chewed the table and chairs, made holes in the leather settees and even pulled down the curtains, so another 600.00 for a very large cage, but we still love her to bits, I have never been able to take a decent photo of her, as soon as we let her out she flies on to my shoulder and there she stays, when a Parrot reaches maturity they choose a mate, and I am the choice, she has no taste! She hates my Wife even though she feeds her, My wife is convinced that Topaz tries to electrocute her by splashing water over her when she uses the Hoover and will attack her when she is near her cage and when she is on my shoulder, they can take off a finger with one bite, see her chew through a plumb stone with no problem, if you want to see her go here http://www.ephotozine.com/user/achieverswales-133282/gallery/photo/macaw-for-car... these are photos taken by my Wife.

Regards

Trev.

So sorry to hear about all the devastation - I can understand your wife's annoyance!
I love V2 and V3 today Trevor - those colours work beautifully for me.
The colours in all versions are unbelievable!

Poor bird must be shivering with all those missing feathers Wink

The worse thing you have to be careful about when they're flying free in the house is that they don't try chewing any electrical cables so yes, they must be kept in a cage worse luck for their own safety.

Good work Trev,
Geoff.

Golly, she sounds a right old handful, Trev: what a narrative.
And what a wonderful array of colours in her plumage: what shame you have not managed to capture her wearing her finery.

Beautiful feathers and beautifully taken. Proves how wonderful things are seen isolated and close up. I wonder if you, or your good lady, make 'things' with the discarded colourful feathers SmileSmile
