A combination for Shadowy Saturday and silly Sunday. The eye of a green parrot taken at a friend's place in Zululand recently Smile
Thanx so much for every vote and comments on the Vultures yesterday - and a special big thanx to Ade, Patti and Jenn for their precious UA's thrown my way Smile
Today we have to travel to Bredasdorp some 75km away for a winter sport day where our son has to do his hockey thing Smile Will try to catch up when we come back this afternoon Smile
Have a great day !

There is something strangely endearing about this, perhaps it's the "caged" idea, but the framing of the eye by the bars and the strong shadows upon the bird's head are extremely interesting elements.
