Alone... and far from home...

While in Connecticut, I spied a flash of green and blue fly by and I knew it wasn't an ordinary bird that just caught my eye.


Although inquisitive, it wouldn't let me get close enough to... eh-hem... help him onto my finger.


And even though this picture was blurry, there is something about it that I just adore.

Wow what a pretty bird!! Too bad he wouldn't perch on your finger!

I love the blurry shot too. It's the lovely color of the blue wings I think that makes it so striking.

So beautiful ~ you are lucky for having had the chance to spy him.

Do you think he got blown off course, or perhaps escaped from a birdcage somewhere. In either case, the photos are great. Such beautiful colors!

Weren't you in the right place at the right time!
Beautiful shots and I like the blurry one too - dreamlike.

these are awesome. here in redlands we have some wild parrots, it is always so bizarre to see them and not feel like I am in Brazil!
