Unexpected

I tore myself away from chores today (LOL) and went to my local park. I hadn’t really wanted to go there cause I just didn’t want anymore duck pictures!! But, as so often happens, I ran into something entirely unexpected. Today it was an Orange Winged Amazon. He was helping his owners feed the ducks. The only thing I did to the picture was a slight levels adjustment and a very slight crop. Shot at 1/500, f6.3, ISO 200, focal length 263.
