Here are a few of the pictures I took during my visit.
First here are Ruby and Kiwi, Eclectus parrots. This is a sexually diamorphic parrot species, meaning that the male and the female differ dramatically in colour and size. The female, Ruby, is bright red and blue and the male, Kiwi, is a dramatic green colour with patches of red on its sides.
Nelson, below, a Hahn's Dwarf Macaw or a Red Shouldered Macaw, was a bit shy I only saw him once.
Carmen and Maria are Green Winged Macaws, beautiful birds.
Cheaper than a movie, and warm and entertaining, what better way to spend part of an afternoon?
I have a painting to show you today and also an annoucement.
First the painting, a watercolour, of a man wearing a mask. The picture was taken by friends visiting Venice at Carnival.
Secondly, I now have another blog! It is called GillianOlsonArt and gives more details about my paintings, including size and price. There is also a tab which features sale items. Click the above link to visit.
Happy New Year, best wishes to one and all!
Happy 1st Whimsy Wednesday of 2013, until next week..............
