Green on Green.. spot the parrot

By annettep38  
For Isabel!!
It is a green land, the sky is often grey now that we are in 'las lluvias' the raining season. Birds and humans get wet and the weather was very merciful to give us a dry independence day.

Our sweet lemon (limón dulce,Citrus lemetta) are now ripe and the Aras from the lowlands send their recce teams out.

So the lowland guests are all over the place but don't you think it is easy to get a shot. This was taken during a downpour with my trusty old 600 MF and a 1.6 converter , hand held from the terrace so that the camera stays sortof dry. You get anywhere near them with a camera and off they are, no chance with a 400mm but at least it leaves us with some lemons!
